One of our favorite things at Verb is working with the designers in our yarn club, Pro-Verbial. Four times a year we develop an exclusive colorway, send it off to a selected designer, and wait to see what they create for us!
The first designer for Year 7 of Pro-Verbial was Annie Rowden. She created Viriditas, a beautiful striped shawl using our yarn Pioneer. Named after the farm where Pioneer's journey began, Viriditas uses short row stripes and easy garter stitch, with a little lace on the edge to add character.
Pioneer is our 100% organic Merino wool yarn grown 90 miles from our shop, milled into yarn in Vermont, and naturally dyed in our Oakland studio.
This pattern is now available to the public, and to celebrate we put together kits so you can knit your own Viriditas shawl! Each kit contains 3 skeins of Pioneer (2 sk MC, 1 sk CC) and a printed copy of the pattern. If you would like to include your Ravelry ID in the notes section when you check out, we will also send a copy to your pattern library.
The original colors used in the shawl are exclusive to the club - the closest match is Option 1.
