Our Blue Spruce Caladenia Shawl Yarn Kit has been especially curated to be used for Ambah O'Brien's upcoming Caladenia Shawl MKAL 2021. 

AMBAH O'BRIEN'S CALENDIA SHAWL MKAL 2021

Ambah's upcoming mystery knit-a-long is set to be a lot of fun and an exciting knit! 

You can subscribe to the MKAL pattern on Ravelry here or on Payhip here. It is currently available at a special pre-purchase price of $5 until Midnight on 1 April, 2021.

The MKAL will commence on 2 April.  There will be five weekly clues (sections of the pattern) released each week via your Ravelry Library or via Payhip.

The KAL will run through to May 31, 2021 to allow plenty of time to finish your project.

The shawl will be a top down triangular shawl, symmetrical and easy to wear.  Knit with a little under 1100 metres of fingering weight yarn, it will be a medium sized shawl.

Ambah has advised there will be short rows, simple lace and mosaic knitting.  There will be tutorials and tips to help you out along the way and inspire you to try your hand at something new with this beautiful project.

Ambah's inspiration for the design is the gorgeous Australian Caladenia, also known as the Spider Orchid, of which there are many beautiful variations.

Knit along in excellent company over in Ambah's Ravelry group - there will be fun chat, support and givewaways.  You can find the MKAL thread here.

LOUIE & LOLA - CALENDIA SHAWL MKAL KITS - MERINO SINGLES

We have curated our Calendia Shawl MKAL Kits based upon the sneak peak Ambah has shared of the design.

Using our Merino Singles yarn base, a 100% Superwash Merino, single ply, roving style yarn, this base is perfect for shawls.  Each skein has a meterage is 366m/ weight 100g.  

Our suggested colourway placements are based upon Ambah's recommendations for the design. 

You can choose between 3 or 4 colour kits for the shawl.  It is important that C1 contrasts strongly against colours 2 (and 3 if using 4 colours).

BLUE SPRUCE - FOUR COLOUR KIT

The Four Colour Kit will include four (4) x 100gm skeins of Louie & Lola Merino Singles, designed to be used as follows:
  • Colourway C1 - Mint
  • Colourway C2 - Maria Island Magic
  • Colourway C3 - Blue Spruce
  • Colourway C4 - Gathering

BLUE SPRUCE - THREE COLOUR KIT

The Three Colour Kit will include three (3) x 100gm skeins of Louie & Lola Merino Singles, designed to be used as follows:

  • Colourway C1 - Mint
  • Colourway C2 - Blue Spruce
  • Colourway C3 - Gathering

Our yarns are hand dyed in small batches using professional quality acid dyes and heat set to ensure colours that will last.

We highly recommend alternating skeins when working with hand dyed yarns in large projects.

Every effort has been made to remove any excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain, particularly with dark and rich colours.  It is therefore recommended to gently hand wash your hand dyed projects on their own, in cold water, with wool wash or a mild detergent.
