Free Pattern Friday: Caltha Shawl

May 16, 2014

The weather has been gorgeous in San Francisco lately, but we still crave something light but warm to wear once the sun goes down.  The Caltha Shawl is just that!


Crafted from a divine yak and silk blend that is perfect for spring and summer, it is light as a feather but provides the ideal amount of warmth when you need it.  With the captivating lacework and ruffle border, it will be perfect for your upcoming special occasions like an outdoor wedding or graduation.


Can’t wait to cast on?  Just grab two skeins of Bloom and size 3 circular needles.  Write us a note in the Special Instructions section at checkout requesting the Caltha Shawl pattern and we’ll include it free with your purchase of Bloom.
