Tif designed the Perennial Garden Shawl for our Pro-Verbial Club in July 2021. It is now available for everyone to knit, so we have created a bundle of brand new colors to go along with its release! Originally made from three colors of our cashmere-merino yarn, Annapurna, we are making this wonderful shawl even more luxurious and have added a skein of Frond to the bundle. Hold with the main color for a bouquet of plant-inspired colors. Tif's original palette, as seen in the finished shawl, is named Reflection.
Perennial Garden Shawl features a variety of slip-stitch designs and a modified two-color garter stitch. Three complementary colorways highlight the subtle textures.
"Perennial Garden Shawl was inspired by the natural beauty found in the layering and variety of shapes, textures and colors found in my own perennial gardens. I love the way a garden can shift and grow from one year to the next, as the wind, birds and animals assist in the natural spreading of seeds, providing a garden with a balanced yet layered blending of colors. The Perennial Garden shawl was particularly inspired by my garden in late Spring / early Summer, when the garden is lush and adorned with many different shapes and colors."

When working with yarn dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
