FANTASTITCH by Stephen West *
Fantastitch is a semi-circular shawl packed with textured stripes and slipped stitches. The graphic details and clean lines of the shawl beautifully showcase hand dyed colorways. The pattern is written for seven colors, but you can customize the stripes however you like by adding extra color pops. I recommend including light, medium, and dark tones to accentuate the graphic quality of the shawl.
*Designer's description and details.
Our kit was inspired by Milli Abrams' (of Tribe Yarn in London, UK) project. Milli used the Balayage colors we've listed as Color Set #1.
The original design was not designed in Balayage but we have created Color Sets that were inspired by Stephen's original samples.

If you are purchases a Large Shawl Kit, please select which colors you want to be the B and E dominant colors in the space provided. Colors names are listed in a clock-wise spiral in toward the center color with respect to each Color Set collage photo.
