For many, spring signals the start of shawl season, and while we still have temperatures in 30’s here in Canada (Fahrenheit, of course – you can take the girl out of the US but you can’t take Fahrenheit out of the girl), I’m so so so ready for spring. So to celebrate it’s arrival, I’m releasing the pattern for my Feyre shawl, which is now available on Ravelry.

Feyre is named for the main protagonist in Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series. It is a take on the Beauty and the Beast story interworven with fairy lore – what’s not to love? Feyre is a tough girl with a soft side, dreaming of one day being a painter, when she is taken away to the Spring Court of the Fae, where love and adventure ensues. So it seems perfect to celebrate her with a bright, colorful striped shawl with a lace border that reminds me of spring blossoms.

I knit Feyre in some delicious Knitted Wit fingering single yarn I picked up when I was visiting Portland in January. I’ve made it a habit to pick up some yarn my local dyers whenever I visit a new place, and the beautiful, bold colors in the Knitted Wit yarns just called out to me. You know I can’t resist a speckle-dyed yarn, but I tried to go a little out of my comfort zone when choosing a coordinating color and went with a golden-hued shade of green. I can’t wait to get another chance to work with this beautiful yarn again.

Hope you are enjoying some beautiful weather in your neck of the woods. What are you looking forward to casting on this spring?

    • Thanks, Julie. I love bold variegated yarns, but they can be daunting to actually knit up. So I was trying to find a fun way to incorporate the best of both worlds.

  1. What a stunning design! I haven’t knit a single shawl yet this year, I think spring is the perfect time to get started. (btw I LOVE that pic in which you are swooshing the shawl around your shoulders)

    • I’m in total shawl mode right now. It’s all I seem to want to work on, but there are other things that need to get done. And I won’t mention how many times it took to get a decent swish photo. I make some pretty amusing faces when I’m not forcing myself to think about it.

  2. Oh, I’m queuing this lovely – I have two skeins of yarn that have been waiting to tell me what they should be and now I know! Beautiful!
