Deepdale Shawl Colourways

col1

Every now and again we come into work at the shop and find there are a lots of orders for the same thing without knowing what its for! a few months ago that happened and we noticed there were a number of orders for 2ply Lace in shades L54, L203, L3 and L202. I thought they looked lovely together and then when I went on Ravelry later on I realised Gudrun Johnston had chosen to use those shades for one of her colourways in her MKAL pattern.

For the past couple of years Gudrun has run a mystery knit along where each week new clues are revealed and you don’t know what the final project will look like! this shawl was this years effort and the final pattern is now available itself: Deepdale

It gave me an idea to put together a few colourways using the 2ply Lace, it’s a sometimes overlooked yarn but it makes for lovely lightweight but warm projects.

the original colourway: L54, L203, L202 and L3

warm browns: L5, L4, L78 and L202

greys: L77, L54, L27 and L203

blues: L21, L63, L15 and L16

pinks: L43, L68, L136 and L101

A number of people also ordered the Shetland Heritage Naturals for this project and they would work beautifully, the Heritage is a little bit thicker than the two ply lace but that only makes for an even more snuggly finished shawl!

The above colourways is very similar to the original, but the two below will give you more of a brown finished shawl or a grey one – I love the greys!

    I love it, I had just finished work this morning wondering how to get this beautiful wool stocked in New Zealand, I always feel a little guilty buying from overseas considering how many sheep live here….it only lasts for a few seconds.

    Thanks for informing me of possible colorways, and the weight choices. I *love* the greys.
