Acadia Shawl Kit - the perfect portable project

This time of year we dream about going somewhere, getting away.  Whether it's a trip to a sunny beach to stick our toes in the sand or a trip to the mountains, or even just out and about running errands, we love a project that can travel with you in the plane, train, or automobile. The Acadia Shawl kit is the perfect "portable project".  

Grace Akhrem designs with four pillars in mind: Colour, yarn, texture, and fashion. She treats knitting like an art, turning your needles into paintbrushes. With a beautiful collection of patterns ranging from hats and shawls to sweaters and blankets, it's no wonder she was asked to design for Louisa Harding yarns. 

Acadia Shawl uses a simple pattern repeat to let the yarn work for you. Knit end to end with an off-center chevron detail, you can choose two lengths. At 16" (41cm) wide, you can choose from a 50" (101cm) length with just one ball of Amitola Brushed or a whopping 128" (256cm) with two balls. 

From Louisa Harding, Amitola Brushed is a unique blend of mohair, cotton and wool for a feather-weight yarn that works up in beautiful blended stripes.  These shawls make awesome gifts - start your gift knitting now!
