Autumn Dahlias: Big Reveal!

Throughout the month of August, we’ve knit away on our Autumn Dahlias Mystery Knit-Along shawls, and it has been SUCH A BLAST! So many of you joined in, sharing your energy, camaraderie, and joy with every stitch. I could not be more thankful!

So, with that said, today the full pattern is out in the world and it’s time for the big reveal! Are you ready?

Autumn Dahlias is playful and colourful, evoking a delightful sense of abundance. Delicate lines and subtle patterns let the colours take over, like when autumn dahlias overtake the garden at the close of summer. With a gradient sock blank and contrasting skeins, you’ll savour the beautiful, wearable shawl at the end.
