Rainchain Shawl: LYS Day 2020 Pattern Promotion!

Rainchain Shawl: LYS Day 2020 Pattern Promotion!

Rainchain Shawl

Oh man, what a year this has been! I think it is safe to say we could all use a little more yarn and a LOT less chaos- so how about a Local Yarn Store day pattern promotion? Sound Good?

Last year The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) had a pattern competition for a new shawl pattern to be featured on local yarn store day. I entered thinking that there was NO WAY I would be lucky enough to win it and be able to support so many local shops at once. My entry was a shawl based on a beautiful rainchain that my children bought me for Mother's day, a string of tiny upside down umbrellas that catch the raindrops on the side of the house and create a lovely tinkle sound. Well SURPRISE! I won the contest, so I set about designing a pattern that could be as versatile as possible, with two samples in two different yarn weights and lots of alteration info to accommodate different yardage amounts. 

Rainchain Shawl

Then came Covid-19, rolling over the world like a runaway train and sadly TNNA could no longer stay in business, so the pattern rights were returned to me for the Rainchain shawl and I needed to come up with a plan. I still wanted this shawl to be a part of local yarn store day, and I was hoping I could find a way to support local yarn shops too! Enter the fine folks at Plymouth Yarn Company, they had originally supplied the yarn support so I could knit the two shawl samples, and when I asked if they wanted to partner up on a giveaway they responded with a quick and decisive YES! YAY!

Rainchain Shawl

So now for the details, if you want to get the Rainchain shawl pattern FOR FREE you need to purchase any skein of Plymouth Yarn Company Yarn from a participating Local Yarn Shop between Sept 11th and 13th and you will get a code for the pattern for free! The codes will be sent to you from the local shop you purchased from- do not email me asking for codes.
