CH 197: Wildflower Hill KAL Winners and Tulle Shawl!

Show Sponsors:

Alongside an eclectic yarn range, which includes Hazel Knits, Icelandic Lopi & CoopKnits, we stock a carefully chosen selection of needles and notions. We’ve also recently launched ‘hand dyed by meadowyarn’, our very own in-house, hand-dyed yarn range. Working in our tiny dye studio, nestled in the Suffolk countryside, we are able to indulge our love of colour, producing complex tonal, kettle-dyed shades across a range of weights and bases. With regular updates our collections evolve and grow, inspired by the landscape and people around us.

AYS is a wool boutique specializing in hand dyed yarns and luxury fibres from around the world. You’ll always find a well curated collection of yarns and colors on the shelves and a friendly knowledgeable staff on hand. Some of our favorite brands include Hedgehog Fibres, SweetGeorgia Yarn, Julie Asselin, Shibui Knits and The Fibre Co. You can find A Yarn Story on Walcot Street in Bath or online at

The Tulle Shawl is our second pattern for Knitvent 2017!

Snowflakes, flowers, and fairies. The iconic ballerina’s tutu is the stuff of dreams. A foam of soft netting, magnificently embellished to emphasisethe dancer’s beauty and grace, it’s usually the first image we think of when we hear the word “ballet”. There’s something inherently magical about the floaty nature of tulle. Even in a little girl’s party dress, a few layers is enough to inspire hours of twirling, spinning and swooping.

The Tulle Shawl was inspired by an exquisite tutu, lovely enough for the Sugar Plum Fairy herself. The garter stitch base makes for relaxing knitting at a busy time of year, and while the elegant lace looks intricate and impressive, it’s actually straightforward to knit! This is a wonderful single-skein project in fingering weight yarn: perfect for a special skein from stash or a gentle speckle. Optional beads offer a chance for a little glitter: dazzling under the stage lights.
