Designer LORNA MISER's Knit or Crochet "Shaded Love Shawl"
Featuring Custom Colorways from Zen Yarn Garden
What do you call it when you host both a Knit Along and a Crochet Along at the same time? A Make-Along!! We are proud to have hosted Lorna Misers's first combination KAL/CAL with the help of the great hand-dyers at Zen Yarn Garden. The Make Along ran in the fall of 2015, but kits including the pattern are still available … knit or crochet??? You decide. Or do both!
Designer Lorna Miser
Probably best known in fiber circles as the founder of Lorna's Laces, Lorna Miser has been a prolific designer since she sold the company in 2003. She's the author of Knit Pink, The Knitter's Guide to Hand-Dyed and Variegated Yarn, and Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting, and her patterns have appeared in several major magazines. She's also done design work for yarn companies such as Brown Sheep, Noro, Cascade, Universal, Blue Sky Alpacas, Willow, and—perhaps obviously—Lorna's Laces.
She's now working on a new dyeing venture called Zombie Yarns and can frequently be found cruising around Northern California in her beloved vintage purple Mustang convertible named Sunshine.
Shaded Love Shawl
Lorna's truly outdone herself with two versions of this beautiful rectangular lace shawl — one knit and one crochet. Both the color and stitch pattern change as you work from the center out.
The skill level you'll need to finish this project is INTERMEDIATE for knitters and crocheters alike.
Knit version measures 22″ × 53″
Crochet version measures 17″ × 46″
Bonus: the pattern—knit or crochet—is FREE with
the purchase of your kit!
Zen Yarn Garden Logo
Known for their rich and lustrous hand-dyed yarns, Zen Yarn Garden created four custom colorways specifically for the Shaded Love Shawl! The yarn is their beautiful Serenity Silk Single, an amazing blend of superwash merino wool, soft cashmere, and lux silk.
The four amazing colorways are Blue Magenta, Charcoal Blues, Greenteak, and Mossy Cranberry (pictured below).

We packaged kits with just the right amount of yarn, so you will just need one Shaded Love Shawl Kit for Knit or Crochet to complete either the knit or crochet shawl.

Knit Gauge: 18 sts × 24 rows = 4″ in Stockinette stitch
Crochet Gauge: 19 sts × 8 rows = 4″ in DC
If you've been thinking about purchasing an interchangeable needle kit, this would be an ideal knit project for using them. As the project grows from the center out, you could change from shorter cables to longer cables without taking your needles from the work. Just sayin'.
If you'd like to load the pattern into your Ravelry library, you receive a PDF when you purchase your kit containing a coupon code that unlocks the pattern on Ravelry.
Connect with other Make Along participants on either the Knit or Crochet MAL Thread in the FiberWild! and Friends group on Ravelry. Ask questions and get help. Questions are typically answered daily. The forums let knitters and crocheters of all skill levels participate and get the help they need from Lorna herself as well as from other Ravelers! Don't be shy … post pictures, comment on posts, and enjoy the camaraderie!
We've also designed badges that you're welcome to use on Ravelry or your own site or blog to let everyone know that you're in on the fun! Get yours at the bottom of this page.
Check out Lorna's guest appearance on The Yarn Thing podcast with Marly Bird where Lorna discusses her history in the yarn industry, her design aesthetic, the origins of the name of the Shaded Love Shawl, and her latest venture into hand-dyeing. Originally aired September 15, 2015, archives are available at Blog Talk Radio and iTunes.
