Yarn + Pattern in one convenient kit
***These are currently being dyed-to-order. Please allow 2-3 business days prior to shipping. Pattern download code will be emailed after purchase. Thank you!
A perfect cool summer evening accessory that will take you right into fall, the Sard Shawl was designed by the incredibly talented Kavitha Raman of CraftDoodling Designs. It’s a recipe for knitting fun with its triangular shape full of stockinette and simple eyelet rows. And, it’s finished off with cute lacy knitted-on border! Kavitha designed Sard for Lake Day Weather, but it would look equally beautiful in any of the new Lakeside Collection colorways. If you’d like to directly support Kavitha, the pattern is now available to purchase in her shop by going here: CraftDoodling Designs
With this kit, you’ll receive either one or two skeins of your choice from the new Lakeside Collection plus the digital pattern*. One skein has enough yardage to complete the small shawl (shown in the pictures above). Two skeins will be enough to create the large shawl version (not shown).

You can jump in any time during the month-long party.
You may use any yarn you choose. Of course, I’d LOVE for you to choose something from the new Lakeside Collection, but knitting together is what I love the most!
Worried about your skill level or what to do if you run into a problem? Kavitha has generously offered support for the duration of the KAL. She’ll be in the Facebook group answering questions and offering suggestions when you need them. I’ll be in the group every day too offering help as I am able.
If you don’t finish your Sard by the end of the KAL, that’s okay! This is meant to be a party where we have fun together while knitting the same project.
HOW TO START
Register here for the most important announcements and details AND to eligible to win the giveaway prize.
Request to join and answer the questions for the Naturally Dyed Lovers Facebook Group here. Once you’ve been admitted to the group, you’ll see an announcement welcoming you to the group and the KAL. Take a moment to introduce yourself and let us know which size Sard you’ll be making and what yarn you’ve chosen to make it with.
The more knitters, the merrier! Please consider sharing this KAL with your knitting friends. If you do, you could win your copy of Sard! Kavitha will randomly give away three copies of this beautiful pattern. When twelve knitters sign up, one will get their pattern for free. When 24 knitters sign up, another participant will get a copy free. When 50 knitters sign up, a third participant will get a free copy. What if you’ve already purchased your copy of Sard and you win? Well, how about share the love by giving it to someone who might also like to join in the fun?!
So, will you join us? We can’t wait to knit with you!
You may also like to know:
–> Each skein is 100 grams of rustic, yet soft, smooth and bouncy fingering (sock) weight wool yarn grown and milled in Wyoming. Yarn is lovingly dyed with natural materials ethically sourced and/or grown in my Central Oregon garden. The yarn wrap features plantable wildflower seed paper so that you can enjoy even more of nature’s beauty!
–> When you purchase one of our hanks of yarn, you’re supporting local ranchers and a woman-owned fiber mill to keep our small communities thriving. You’ll be creating on-trend projects while using dyes that are the gentlest on our environment by keeping our water sources clean. Knitting with this yarn will connect you so deeply to the sheep it will almost feel like you have one of your own!
–> This yarn is farm-fresh. It arrives full of vegetation leftover from the sheep’s shenanigans out in their field. I pick out as much as I can by hand, but there will likely be some leftover bits that I’ve missed. Just consider these extra love from the sheep! Baaaa…
–> Every effort will be made to package your order in an environmentally-friendly way using recycled and/or reused materials.
***Hand wash cool***
Great care was taken to ensure dye was set properly. However, it is normal for natural dye matter to continue to rinse for the first few washes.
