If you want to select our own yarns for the kit, select the Make My Own! option from the dropdown. You can use any 2 skeins of our fingering weight yarns (1 each of two colors) or 1 skein of fingering and 1 set of minis to make the shawl, but you MUST have at least 200g of fingering weight yarn in your cart to be eligible to receive the pattern.
Please note, for the Pride colorway ONLY: This colorway includes 11 minis inspired by the new Pride flag. That way you can use as many or as few of the colors in your shawl as you like. The main color offered with the shawl is Love Me Tender, a nice neutral silver gray that will set off all of the individual colors nicely. If you would prefer we switched this out for a different color, please include it in the notes section.
About The Pattern, In The Designer's Words
Rainbow Relay is an elongated crescent shape designed to show off mini skeins, gradients and lovely leftovers.
The main body is a simple and easy-to-memorise knit, then each successive row of colour gets its day in the sun in an oval of short rows, before handing on the baton to the next colour, shifted but overlapping the last, creating swells of colour across the shawl.
The pattern is a tool kit, providing an easy-to-customise formula for making your shawl, plus three specific designs for the samples pictured.
It’s an addictive and fun to knit - if you’re anything like me you’ll want to do a whole bunch of them!
Main Colour: one 100g skein of 4ply/fingering weight yarn of at least 400m/ 437yd
Contrast Colours: a set of 3-12 mini skeins or leftovers adding up to at least 60g of 4ply/fingering weight (or 30g in laceweight, as is used in the first sample).
The gauge isn’t important and is easily adapted to different weights of yarn.
This pattern has been tech edited by Katherine Lymer and test knitted.
As a rule of thumb, a mini set and one 4ply/fingering skein (of about 400m) will get you a shawl spanning about 2m/6.5ft.
Grey sample size: depth - 30cm/11.5in, and length (of top edge) - 218cm/86in

I’m Jane and I am a knitwear designer based in Manchester, UK. I believe that knitting is a creative collaboration between maker, designer and yarn dyer. I have released several successful patterns which adhere to this ethos. I spend the rest of my time working as a user experience designer for charities and social enterprises.
