Well Traveled, from longtime Friend of the Flock Samantha Guerin, is a soft and fuzzy shawl featuring our Weld with a mohair laceweight perfect for our Spark! This gently undulating cabled shawl is a soothing knit perfect for spring and summer knitting anywhere.
A note: Well Traveled is available as a digital download and a yarn+pattern bundle here at H+W.com, but 100% of pattern sales revenue goes directly to the designer, just as if you bought the pattern directly from their website or on Ravelry. We think this way, everybody wins: you get an easier, more straightforward experience as a consumer, our indie designer friends get to realize the maximum revenue from their work, and you get another great way to access new designs in our yarn outside of our pattern collections.
