At the 2018 Vegas TNNA some awesome yarn companies came together and collaborated to make up a set of colors for a gorgeous shawl Vegas Nights. I’ve been meaning to make a leftovers shawl forever, and this set of minis was just perfect for it!

You can make up your Florice Shawl in any colors or quantities of yarn you want - it is 4 repeating stitch patterns for which I’ve used 5 colors and about 500 yards of yarn. The only thing I suggest it that you use an odd number of colors so you don’t use the same color and the same stitch pattern repetitively - unless that’s what you want!

This is the yarns and the order I used:

Color A: Knit One Crochet Too Mini Crock-O-Dye in Deep Plum (125 yds; 65% Superwash Wool, 20% Nylon, 15% Silk)
Color B: Anzula Luxury Yarns Squishy in Misfit (96 yds; 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon )
Color C: Oink Pigments Oink Targhee Sock in Desert Dessert (100 yds; 90% USA Superwash Targhee, 10% Nylon)
Color D: Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Love Sock in Lupine (105 yds; 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon)
Color E: Lorna’s Laces Staccato Shepherd Sock in Argon (107 yds; 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon)
