Snowy Evening by Jayalakshmi: knitted shawl add-on kit

This is the Snowy Evening Add-On kit... simply choose your yarn and add it to your basket, along with this add-on, and we will make it up into a kit for you - it will include the pattern, an ECY printed cotton project bag, and a sachet of Soak (random scent).

Please note that we will only post out this add-on as part of a full kit, ie. with the yarn bought for the shawl (you will need four 100g skeins of aran weight yarn)

About the pattern

The Snowy Evening Shawl is an asymmetric triangular shawl knit on the bias using four skeins of Pendle Aran in Oak. The shawl begins with a few stitches that grows to a long narrow garter section that’s knit asymmetrically on a bias using simple knit increases and decreases. When the requisite stitch count is reached, the cable/lace border is knit, followed by a final garter section. The lace patterns are both written and charted.

The shawl is the fourth and final of the four-shawl collection Four Seasons. This Winter shawl draws its name and inspiration from Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” In this poem, Frost is captivated by the sight of the dark woods and pure white snow. The lonely journey of the poet or the horse-rider symbolizes the journey of an individual through life. The poet exhorts us fulfill our duties and responsibilities, without being distracted by the pleasures of life.

The Collection
The Four Seasons Collection Subscription is an exciting collaboration with Jayalakshmi (aka Jaya - @jayalakshmimh on Instagram) which will see the release of four designs, one for each season. Four Seasons is a collection of four shawls/wraps inspired by Jaya’s love for simple and meaningful poetry, by some of her favourite poets. Each poem and the associated design celebrate the season while also conveying a deeper meaning and philosophy of life. All four designs use Eden Cottage Yarns in a variety of quantities, bases and weights to beautifully capture the spirit of both the poem and the season

Jaya is a knitwear designer, and mother of twin girls living with her husband in India. She believes in designing simple yet elegant knits that are as fun to knit as they are comfortable to wear. We have been working with Jaya for over 18 months now, and every one of her designs have beautifully showcased our yarns so we know that the four designs in this collection will be well worth the wait.
