Inspired by, and designed in support of, John Arbon’s new yarn line, Yarnadelic.

Yarnadelic is a yarn made from beautiful Falkland corriedale wool and the colourways are inspired by 1960s/70s music - especially folk, funk, psychedelic and soul. 

The shawl - Don’t Fret is inspired by the acoustic guitars often featured in the music and the album art. The slipped stitch pattern is inspired by the fretboard of an acoustic guitar.

The shawl is worked flat and on the bias. The pattern is adjustable - so you can work as many repeats as you want.
