During our Trunk Show with our friend, the lovely Kacey Herlihy, we are offering some of her patterns through our online store. This pattern we be emailed to you as a pdf document after purchase.

This design is also available as kits in colorways selected by Kacey. You can create your own kit by selecting the DK weight yarns of your choosing. You'll need two skeins of the DK weight yarn of your choosing. This pattern will be included for free with purchase of the yarn. Please email us to request the pattern.

If you have any questions or would like your purchased pattern in your ravelry library please email us at hello@ blacksquirrelberkeley.com.

From Kacey:

"The perfectionist trap is a term for getting stuck in a loop of requiring or expecting perfectionism from ourselves and others and allowing that rigidity to halt progress or growth. Avoiding trying new things because we know we can’t be great at them right away, procrastinating on small steps to avoid failing on a bigger level, fearing that our best won’t be good enough - these are things everyone can relate to, but when those fears become paralyzing, it leads to inaction, and we get stuck in the perfectionist trap.

This DK weight shawl has a 54” wingspan, but can be easily lengthened or shortened by increasing or decreasing the number of pattern repeats (please note this will also change required yardage).

Additionally, gauge and weight are not significant for this pattern. I would recommend using a yarn and needle size to give you a drapey yet structured shawl.

If you want to use two skeins that are 231 yds each, replace the i-cord bind off with a standard or stretchy bind off. If you’re a loose knitter, consider also going down a needle size for the entire project."
