Where will the winds transport you? Welcome to The Expedition! A special shawl club by Skeinwalker. The Expedition is all about exploring and discovering new territories. The Expedition . Year 1 . The Winds will have four shawlettes designs, all worked with one single skein of yarn in fingering or heavy lace hand-dyed by indie dyers. They’ll have lace and they will all be customizable.
The patterns will be released in November 2017, February 2018, May 2018 and August 2018.
Grab your skeins and needles and join us for a year long of exploration! The Aquilon shawl is the third shawl of The Expedition . Year 1 . The Winds.

Rolling hills gently stretch over the plain far and wide. Their verdant sides seem like a velvet cloth gently draped over the surroundings. Volcanoes have shaped this landscape and have gone dormant, creating humps and bumps as if curled up in their sleep.
Amarijo is a West wind from such a place, in the center of France: from the Massif Central and Limousin regions. A place that knows many streams and water sources.
The Amarijo shawl is an asymmetric extended triangle with wavy edges echoing those gentle hills. Columns of stitches move their way up from tip to edging like water streams flowing downhill. Join this adventure amongst the hills; follow your very own winding stream.
