Ramona Linn





worsted weight yarn


With Ramona Linn, Friend of the Flock Makenzie Alvarez knocked it out of the park with her gorgeous, cabled, and squishy Ramona Linn shawl. Just in time for fall knitting this beautiful and versatile shawl/scarf is just right to wrap up in on a chill fall day or bundle around the neck as a scarf.

It’s no secret we’re huge fans of cables, especially ones that seamless flow in and out of ribbing. Ramona Linn is named after a waterfall in Oregon and emulates cascading falls throughout the undulating cable + rib fabric of the shawl. 

A note: Ramona Linn 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.
