The ladies here at The Fibre Studio are frequently amazed and gratified by the generous acts of service within our greater fiber community. One of our favorite yarnies is Ginny S. Our Ginny crochets “The Ginny” shawl for many of her friends and family. These gifts, made from some of the finest yarns and generously-proportioned, are truly gifted from the heart.
Ginny’s magnanimity made us think about those that knit for self AND for others, and we wanted to create a product for those customers who want the ultimate in color flexibility, but who still want to make something special. After all, life is too short to knit with
acrylic bad yarn.
Introducing our new Mosaic Knit Kit Builder, an “interactive” add-on built for the maker with an interest in mosaic style shawls and who may knit for others. What is mosaic knitting, you ask? Mosaic knitting at its simplest is the technique where the maker utilizes multiple yarn colors (only one color at a time) along with slip stitches to create intermingled geometric patterns.
Many of the featured shawl patterns in our kit builder utilize “odd” amounts of yarn so The Fibre Studio has identified a way to maximize yarn usage and pattern options to enable customers to identify two, 8-ounce skeins of yarn in their favorite contrasting colors and then decide which two shawls they want to make–for self, to gift, or to work with a friend.
All featured patterns combinations were reviewed for yardage requirements. Any two patterns herein will use up to TWO, 8-ounce skeins (approx 1120 yards each) of our SW Merino – Fingering, a 2-ply yarn, which is fluffy and springy in the hand.
How to Build Your Kit
1. From our Mosaic Knit Kit Builder page, select which two patterns in the kit builder you want to purchase and add them to your cart;
2. Go to the SW Merino – Fingering collection and select two, 8-ounce skeins of yarn in contrasting color ways and add them to your cart;
3. Provided you have added the Mosaic Knit Kit to your cart and meet the minimum purchase of $100, use the discount code MOSAIC at checkout to get 50% off the kit builder (i.e. one of the patterns for free).
This is a “TWOfer YOU” deal you won’t want to miss! With the purchase of TWO, 8-ounce skeins you get TWO patterns, resulting in TWO shawls. And YOU choose the kit!
We love our fiber community and the attitude of gratitude and generosity that abounds within it. We also love finding new ways to enable creativity within that community. Happy stitching, y’all!
