Sprout is part of my Dusk eBook!

Dusk is a gorgeous new yarn from Hinterland Yarns. I was lucky enough to be given this yarn to design with before it’s official release. I designed these four shawls Sprout, Afterglow, Eventide and Dusk Light to highlight the lofty, rustic nature of this yarn.

It’s gorgeous yarn, and I have loved designing and knitting each of the shawls in this collection SO much.
