As many of you who follow me on Instagram know, I just spent the weekend at Stitches West with my Naturally Straight Forward knitting bestie - Annie Rowden of By Annie Claire!

Always looking to push our creative boundaries, we really wanted to do something special for Stitches West. So we teamed up with Sincere Sheep to create two new shawl designs- Freshwater (pictured top) and Wildberry (pictured bottom). If you haven’t experienced Brooke’s yarns - they should move to the top of your list!! Amongst my favorites our her Cormo (used in the Freshwater Shawl), Equity (used in the Wildberry Shawl), and Bannock (used in my Chevy Hat.)

Annie and I each started a shawl without telling the other what our plans were. Then about halfway thru we stopped and mailed it to the other person so they could finish it up however they desired! The result was two designs we couldn’t have achieved on our own! It was such a special way to celebrate our partnership and love of naturally dyed yarn and knitting!

We hope you love them as much as we do!

We originally released the patterns at Stitches West, but they are now available both here and here in my pattern shop and also on Ravelry! Both patterns are welcome additions to the ongoing Naturally Straight Forward Knitalong that I host in the DreaReneeKnits Ravelry group!
