The Massallo Shawl

By Louis Boria

Louis with TKE Friends Jan & Angel

Our Newest Kit Project
by Bethlehem native Louis Boria.
You all know Louis from Hat Not Hate fame. Now you can get to know Louis from this designs. One of his latest is the Massallo Shawl. It uses 6 colors of a DK weight yarn. We have chosen to knit it, and feature it in DK Merino Superwash. Jen has curated 10 yarn bundles for this beauty.
And to make it all even more enticing- each yarn bundle is specially priced at 25% off! A 6 hank set of DK Merino Superwash is valued at $48.00 but now is selling at $36 per yarn bundle. The Massallo Shawl pattern is available on Ravelry. We can purchase it for you, or you can get it yourself. This is an easy to knit design- promising to bring peaceful comfort. Our many thanks for our dear friend Louis for this thoughtful design.
