The Papillon Shawl pattern was created by designer Marin Melchior in 2015, and has since been tackled by intrepid knitters all over the world. The Papillon Shawl pattern actually looks a lot harder than it really is. Short row sections in the main colour, a long transition gradient, combined with ridges of garter stitch in the contrast colour, a striking solid, create a stained glass effect that makes for an addictive and gratifying knit.

Every effort has been made in this design to create a pattern that the "average knitter can find success with". Carefully written instructions are colour coded to ensure easy interpretation, and there are tons of pictures throughout to help guide you along your journey.

Each and every skein of Urth Uneek Fingering is truly a work of art with its rich, vibrant colours, its earthy feel, and the exceptional softness in every skein. This outstanding 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino has sensational hand and comes in a true kaleidoscope of colours.

For the contrast colour, we are using Harvest Fingering, also from Urth Yarns. Harvest is naturally dyed using fruits, roots and nuts to create deep, intense, natural tones. The colour names are all based upon the source of the colour from which the dye was derived.

Urth Yarns is a company located in Turkey who produce high quality hand dyed yarns, support local women and make a huge commitment to the environment. Urth Yarns specialise in innovative dyeing techniques to create vibrant colours and unique self-striping yarns. Urth also works in partnership with Trees for the Future, an organisation dedicated to ending extreme hunger and poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa. For every skein of Urth Yarns sold, a tree is planted in Africa!!
