Quill Shawl Kit
A note about the pattern from the designer, Veera Valimaki…
“A little lace and a lot of stripes, what would suit a clear graphic shawl better? Quill shawl starts with an easy lace pattern and then moves to squishy garter stitch in stripes, which makes a relaxing knitting experience and a wonderful-to-wear shawl in the end.
With this Quill shawl I wanted to create something soothing to the eyes that would also have a lot of textural interest. The crips black-and-white look was just perfect for a little texture play. This lovely shawl is worked first sideways, then on the bias.”

Peerie is the polished, worsted-spun sibling to Brooklyn Tweed’s rustic, woolen-spun Loft. Peerie sings in both cabled and textured fabrics, and looks lovely knit up in lace, thanks to a 4-ply construction that enhances luster and strength.
Boasting a palette of 45 colors, Peerie is an excellent companion to have alongside you when adventuring in colorwork motifs or when showcasing your favorite hue–the choices are abundant. Perfect for next to skin wear, Peerie is BT’s softest yarn yet, thanks to the fine fiber (20.5 microns!) of the Merino sheep.
