Knitters and hockey players have this in common: sticks!

Score a gorgeous shawl using your favourite River City Yarns Hat Trick hockey yarn and following the coaching of Canadian designer, Holli Yeoh.

Show off your stick work with this easy shawl—you can work on it at the rink, and when it’s finished it will keep you warm during the game. This hot shawl comes in three sizes and really is an enjoyable knit. Stockinette gets it going and variations of the Feather and Fan stitch pattern give it lots of interest. Knit it in your favourite team colours and wear it with pride. You knit, you score!

Available as a kit at

Substitution Notes
This project is perfect for hand-dyed fingering weight and sock yarns. Commercially dyed yarns will also work. Choose a fibre blend that you enjoy knitting with and wearing and that will open up the lace sts when blocked.
