This half - pi shawl is a collaboration between Tiny Tyrant Designs and indie yarn dyer Safronie, the color master behind The Knitting Fairy exclusive Fairy Tales yarn.

The idea for this pattern came about due to a desire to create something to bring awareness to a cause that has unfortunately impacted both of us. We have both lost a friend or a family member to suicide. In our separate ways, we have both individually supported different organizations to help with prevention, ranging from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to Project Semicolon to the Trevor Project.

The colors chosen for the primary sample are a play on the Project Semicolon blue. We initially thought to use a black to offset the blue; to show the struggle between the light and the dark. However, as Safronie was working up the colors, she remembered the most important thing that we wish those struggling would remember in their darkest hour: that is it is never so dark that the black takes over.

All proceeds from the sale of this pattern will go to Project Semicolon, in memory of my brother and Safronie’s friend(s).

The pattern is a mix of garter stitch and easy open lace work. In keeping with the theme of interwoven light and dark, the bind off is a woven loopy i-cord edge using both colors.

Thank you for supporting our cause and I cannot wait to see how your light and dark play out.

We all have a story, let’s tell it with yarn.
