Ribbon Tool Shawl

The latest Interweave Knits, Spring 2015 has just been released and I’ve got a shawl in it – Ribbon Tool Shawl.

Last spring when I was in Washington DC Dragonfly Fibers gave me a gift of some Pixie yarn. It was in the color, ‘Springtime in Washington’, a delicate pink with darker brown and black tones splashed through it. Pale pink is not a color I’m normally drawn to but there was something about the delicate color with those darker undertones that really appealed to me. When the call for designs for the spring Interweave came out this yarn looked like the perfect match.  This shawl was designed to make the most use of garter stitch using German Short Rows to gently slope the shawl. The shaping is created entirely with short rows and then the lace edge is knitted on sideways.

I’ve got a special treat for all of you –  Dragonfly Fibers have offered a yarn giveaway for my readers of their Pixie yarn that Ribbon Tool Shawl is made in.

What do you have to do?

To be entered in the draw, go to the website to pick the color of Pixie they would use to make the shawl. Then put your pick in the comments below. I will enter all comments into a raffle and the winner will be sent the yarn! Get your comment in before 10 in the morning (GMT) on Wednesday 4th of February. I’ll do a random drawing for the winner later that morning.

Best of luck!

  1. Dragonberry Pixie would be my colour choice for the ribbon shawl.

    All the colours and their names are amazing.

  2. Winter Woods. We are having our 3rd coastal snow storm since last Saturday, with a 4th expected on Monday. We want the snow up in the mountains, not on the coast! The Winter Woods color looks exactly like all of the trees around here now.

  3. I adore the Raspberry Pixie colour way. So many lovely colours to choose from!

  4. All of the colors are amazingly beautiful but I think my choice would be the original of Springtime in Washington!

  5. What a beautiful shawl! As for me, it’s District 12 Pixie all the way. Those deep grays would match anything in my closet.

  6. So many beautiful colors. I will have to try this yarn and Carol’s patterns are always fantastic! My first pick would be Captain Nemo.

  7. The colors are great saturated works of art! Several of them were stand outs for me, I’m always a sucker for Grellow, and the flecks of gold in Siren are stunning – but I think my choice would be Walkin’ on the Sun would be a real head turner on your Ribbon Tool Shawl – perfect for this freckle face, Auburn haired gal :)

  8. Wow, this dyer has an amazing eye for color! It’s hard to choose but I would pick Danaerys if I were to win this yarn for a Ribbon Tool Shawl.

  9. I think for Spring the color chosen is lovely, though i think I’d make it in the Conch Shell colorway … a bit warmer palette. I’ve had hand surgery last week and hope to be knitting again by Spring … this would be a wonderful welcome back project for my hands!

  10. Wow! Thanks for bringing this yarn to my attention. The color ways are gorgeous! It makes for quite the difficult choice, but I find myself come back to Cognac repeatedly.

  11. Beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing a new yarn with me. I like Titana Pixie. Second choice would be Into the Woods. Will have to remember this place next time I need a treat. Thank you.

    Nice shawl and yarn combination.

  12. Turning Leaves would make a wonderful shawl. But I’d love to try out African Daisy also.

  13. My first pick was Shenanegan but African Daisy really calls to me, really, really, calls!!!!

  14. Springtime in Washington Pixie Is my favorite. Love the all, really. I love all shades of pink.

  15. Wow! All the colors are so beautiful, but my absolute favorite is “Springtime in Washington”. I love light pinks.

  16. Love Black Pearl Pixie. Looks like a color that would get a lot of use in my wardrobe!
