Shambala is my first shawl design since taking on the task of live-in care for my grandmother who has dementia. Knitting away on this shawl design became my own little piece of solace on particularly rough days. Shambala is a top-down crescent-shaped shawl that features rhythmic brioche, engaging lace, relaxing eyelets, and an addictively simple applied lace bind-off.
Worked flat, Shambala contains written directions, charts, and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.
Shambala was named by the talented dyer behind this pattern, Shelly, of Log House Cottage. It’s one of her favorite Three Dog Night songs!

I actually got this yarn a few months ago in my crate but only recently decide what to make with it. It's just the right amount of yarn to make a sleep tank for my daughter and it's turning out perfect. I was worried that the metallic bit would be scratchy but they're just as soft as the rest of the yarn and add the perfect amount of shine. I'm going to save this to give her at Christmas and have to knit in secret so it's taking a while but I'm so excited!
Bonjour, jusqu'à maintenant j'ai aimé toutes les laines que j'ai reçu je n'ai pas et déçu merci
This yarn is lovely, it really does evoke feelings of flowers "sprouting" up out of the snow and brings an air of spring with it. It is super soft and the tencel adds a little something extra. Highly recommend. Well done KnitCrate on another brilliant yarn!
The mystery grab bag yarn is a very soft, lovely yarn. It can stand up to a bit of frogging which is really important in my experience. The colorway is super pretty.
I’m not super crazy with the yarn and the patterns are geared more for beginners. I will wait for a few more months and decide if I will continue with membership.
