The Papillon Shawl has become legendary – and now we have it in a kit. This is the shawl kit you have all been waiting for! Choose your colours and get the pattern and create this magical wrap that uses simple techniques and clever yarn to achieve brilliance.
It’s not hard to see why the Papillon Shawl is one of the most talked-about projects out there. It is a pattern that produces truly remarkable results. And it’s addictive, because once you’ve made your first you’ll want to make even more! And this kit has everything you need to make a perfect shawl.
The key to the remarkable colour transitions in the Papillon Shawl is the yarn. Because Urth Yarns Uneek Fingering changes colour, you’ll see the shawl shades shift as you knit it together. These yarns are hand-dyed by women in Turkey. And for each skein you buy, Urth Yarns plants a tree.
At first glance, the pattern may seem complicated – but don’t worry! Most people find that if they dive in, the next steps in the pattern become clear to them.
