Slumber Shawl is available exclusively at our brick & mortar shop, Stephen & Penelope, in Amsterdam until mid-January 2019. In store and online orders with four skeins or more of La Bien Aimée yarn will receive a free copy of this pattern .

This design is a preview of my new winter collection called Hiberknitting. I will be signing copies of the Hiberknitting book at Vogue Knitting Live NYC in January followed by an east coast tour. Dates and locations will be revealed soon!

Choose four colors of worsted or aran weight yarn and fade them together for this simple top-down shawl. Textured stripes flow into a wavy border that is easy and quick to knit. The plump Merino Aran yarn from La Bien Aimée produces the softest shawl that will keep you cozy on snowy winter days.
