||Dandelion, the newest yummy creation by Madelinetosh, had Tosh Merino Light lovers as well as linen fans in the store bouncing with joy as soon as it arrived! It is a gorgeous single-ply blend of 90% superwash merino wool and 10% fine linen. Each skein contains an ample 325 yards, and the linen adds a touch of soft heathering to the yarn for that highly sought-after rustic and summery appearance.
Rachel (she's one of our übercreative designing beans) couldn't wait to create a new pattern in this beautiful yarn - The Ripple Effect Shawl, which we totally fell in love with right away. It features three beautiful shades of Dandelion, and a cool mix of garter stitch and wavy lace that is really fun to knit (to see some more pictures of the shawl, check out the extra photos with the Seawash Bouquet).
If you like it as much as we do, then our latest Flower Bouquets made with Dandelion are an excellent way to give a kit for this shawl to a loved one - or yourself, since the shawl pattern is included in these bouquets!
We have Madelinetosh Dandelion Bouquets in quite a few different colors - Rachel used the Seawash Bouquet for her version of the Ripple Effect Shawl. Please see below for our current selection, or some fave 3-color picks in Dandelion if you prefer to order á la carte. The Ripple Effect Shawl pattern is also available to purchase on Ravelry, and Rachel put together some more fun color combo ideas on her blog, Unraveled-Designs.com.
Not into linen? The Ripple Effect Shawl also looks wonderful in Tosh Merino Light - see available bouquets and a few of our favorite threesomes below!
