Lauren's April Fool Shawl is No Joke
We recently starting carrying the beautiful Hey Lady Hey's Single Lady yarn at Fancy Tiger. I loved the color combinations and speckled yarns that Melissa creates. When the April Fool pattern came out this year I picked my two favorite colors and set to work--on April Fool's Day no less!
Pattern: April Fool by Melissa Stajda
Materials: Hey Lady Hey Single Lady yarn: 2 skeins Patina and 1 skein Les Fleurs
Size Made: One Size
Modifications: Used a lighter weight yarn for a smaller size
Normally I stick with solid yarns and keep it pretty neutral but I couldn't stop dreaming about the Les Fleurs colorway. The colors work so well together, without being too loud, and it looked perfect for spring when I paired it with the Patina! We've been having some crazy weather here so a light scarf seemed like just the thing.
The Single Lady yarn is a bit smaller than the sock yarn used in Melissa's version. It's more of a light fingering weight so the scarf came out a bit smaller. I actually think the size is perfect for me but a sock yarn would provide a larger wrap if you're into it!
Single Lady was great to work with and it blocked out beautifully. It's so soft and fluffy! One of my favorite things about this scarf is the little tassels! I had never made tassels like this before but now I want to put them on everything! They were super simple to make and the pattern directs you to Purl Soho's tutorial, which you can find here.
I'm so happy with how this shawl turned out! I can't wait to experiment with some of the other colorways we have. There are so many great options and I definitely am into the speckle craze now! #specklesarehotrightnow
