Yellowstone is a soft and beautiful yarn, with a blend of wool and a touch of silk for strength and luster. Each skein contains 285 yards of 3-ply luxury. It’s the perfect yarn for a warm winter shawl that can also double as a blanket. The yarn is available in 9 colors inspired by the beauty of the American wilderness.
I originally created this design as a shawlette for a mystery knit along in 2012. I purchased the yarn, A Tree Hugger’s Wife Royal Silk from the dyer, Melissa Highfill, when I was at Seaside Yarns in Juneau, Alaska, on a real knitting cruise in 2012. The colorway was called “glacier.” With such an arctic pedigree, there was no way I could design something that was not inspired by ice and snow. I designed this one step at a time, in sections, just like I would knit a pi shawl. But it’s not entirely a true pi shawl and the center increases are charted out so the yarn overs form the lovely star pattern in the center. Emily’s Winter Wonderland is a larger version made out of merino-silk with additional motifs around the edges to create a very generous sized shawl or a blanket for wrapping up on the couch on a chilly winter afternoon.
