This gorgeous shawl pattern was designed by Meghan Fernandes for Loop London’s 10th anniversary book ‘10’. It is available as a printed book through Loop, London (loopknitting.com) or your local LYS.
In the States the book is distributed through Deep South Fibers, while stock lasts, after that and for the rest of the world, through Loop, London.

‘Loop’s 10’ has 12 patterns celebrating 10 fabulous years of Loop,London. All patterns are written and charted. Each printed book comes with a download code.

Note: ‘Speckled Mist’ is a beautiful bespoke color for Loop,London. This shawl will look totally beautiful in many hand-dyed Fingering yarns - though Speckled Mist is a beauty and we were honoured that VIOLA dyed this for us.

Inspired by both the designers’ and dyers’ time in England, ‘Wreath’ captures the colours and shapes of the seasons. Viola sought to evoke the subtle and natural colours found in the Exmoor landscape, whereas Meghan’s design is founded on the quintessential Loop style. The layered tones and complex colours of ‘Speckled Mist’ are revealed with a dainty daisy stitch, while overlapping branches and leaves boarder the shawl.
