DIY Kit - Nomad Shawl Blanket
This shawl is worked flat - circular needles are used to be able to fit all the stitches. You can use straight needles if you wish. When changing from one color to another you can either cut the yarn and join the ends or carry the second color until you need it again. This pattern uses garter stitch and drop stitch. For drop stitch watch online video tutorial on our Youtube channel.
Dream is our new name for Merino Worsted yarn. Though the name is different and we have a new palette of color offerings, nothing else about Dream has changed: it is the same yarn you know and love!
