I’m so excited to be joining the Summer Extravaganza Finesse Cotton Silk DK Mini Make Along with the King Cole North American Brand Ambassadors! If you’ve been following my blog or reading my newsletters for a while, you know that I have been a King Cole North American Brand Ambassador since 2020. I love working with their yarns, which are much beloved throughout the UK and Europe, and I’m so excited to share them with my US and Canadian readers!

The transition from summer to fall is one of my favorite times for wearing shawls. It’s usually still air conditioned indoors and the nights get chilly.

For this Make Along, all the North American Brand Ambassadors used Finesse Cotton Silk DK, an exquisitely soft cotton and silk blend yarn with a gentle twist of texture. Finesse Cotton Silk DK is available from your local yarn shop or online at LoveCrafts and Wool Warehouse UK. It’s just perfect for making shawls with gorgeous drape and a soft feel for covering bare shoulders!

Puffs and Granny Stripes Shawlette

Granny Shawl Crochet Pattern by Underground Crafter
