Antarktis Shawl

August 05, 2015 Julie Petrella

We recently added The Fibre Company's Meadow yarn to our shop. Have you ever knit with this lace weight yarn? It's made of merino wool, baby llama, silk and linen which makes for a beautiful soft, subtly textured combination. 

I asked my friend Tammy to knit up a shop sample so we could see this yarn in action. She used Janina Kallio's Antarktis knitting pattern and Meadow in Larkspur to create this perfect shawl for all seasons. Each skein of Meadow has a generous 545 yards, making this a fun, one-skein project. Don't be alarmed at the fact this is lace weight yarn! Thin yarn doesn't always have to require small needles, as this pattern uses size US 4 - US 6 knitting needles. It will go faster than you think!

Here are the colors of Meadow that we currently have in stock:

{The Fibre Company's Meadow in Hydrangea, Larkspur, Queen Anne's Lace, Silt & Cornflower}

{The Fibre Company's Meadow in Fennel, Ladyslipper, Aster, Black Adder & Pokeweed}

If Antarktis hasn't quite caught your eye, you can find a bunch of other lovely patterns for Meadow right here.

Which will you knit?

The Fibre Company's Meadow yarn and knitting patterns are now available for purchase at Home Made!
