Malabrigo Odyssey Shawl Knit-a-Long (KAL) starts April 1st!
During April 2020, Northfield Yarn is partnering with one of our favorite yarn companies, Malabrigo, on their first-ever knit-along! Malabrigo has introduced three beautiful new colors of Dos Tierras -- Alice, Fairy Tale, and Neverland -- especially designed for Joji Locatelli's Odyssey shawl pattern (a FREE download on Ravelry)
Dos Tierras is a drapey DK-weight blend of 50% Merino wool and 50% baby alpaca. Malabrigo's legendary colors have a heathery appearance in this yarn due to the mix of two different fibers. It's perfect for this spring project!
There are pattern modifications that are suggested for this KAL and making a gauge swatch is highly recommended. Please see the Malabrigo Web post about the KAL for complete information and instructions.
We will be providing support for the KAL in our online Zoom** Classroom during the Online Open Stitch sessions on 3 Saturdays: April 4, 11, & 18; from 10am - noon.

NOTE: Due to the MN Stay-at-Home order in effect during the COVID-19 crisis (currently March 27-April 11), there will be no staff in the shop to process orders for physical items. You can still register for the KAL, and we hope to be able to open the Online Shop and ship yarn & other supplies again, once the MN Stay-at-Home order is lifted.
