New Project & Kit: Shibui Mix Shawl


Our lovely and prolific Rosie just finished this store sample, the Shibui Mix no. 3 Shawl, made with sumptuous Shibui Staccatto and Silk Cloud! 

I was planning it as a kit for the upcoming Toronto Knitter’s Frolic (please don’t forget to take our survey), but it was so lovely I dropped everything and immediately whipped up the kits and put them out. I don’t know if the kits will last the month until to the Frolic, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something else, equally wonderful and clever.




You’ll also need:




At Shibui, sometimes two strands are better than one. They are very into combining yarns to create incredible aesthetic effects. This shawl alternates stripes of a single strand of Shibui Silk Cloud (silk & softest kid mohair) and two strands of luxe Shibui Staccatto (squishy silk + merino with a slight sheen) held with Shibui Silk Cloud. The overall effect is soft and airy, yet also geometric – very modern, elegant, and never boring.


KITS Shibui Mix no. 6 Slouchy Toque


KITS Shibui Slouchy Toque (Mix no. 6)

We’ve put together some kits for Shibui’s sumptuous Slouchy Toque, minimistically named “Mix no. 6.”  The creatives at Shibui are big on blending, combining, and experimenting with their yarns.  This particular hat combines their delicious Baby Alpaca DK with the soft & luminous Silk Cloud, to form a soft fabric with drape, warmth, and a lovely depth of colour + texture. 



Kit Includes
  • 1 skein Shibui Baby Alpaca DK
  • 1 skein Shibui Silk Cloud
  • pattern
  • clear zipper project bag
  • currently available in Nude (pink, see below), Ivory + Graphite
  • $44.97

Kit does not contain knitting needles or other notions required: 3.75mm-16″ circular needles, 4.5mm-16″ circular + double pointed needles, stitch marker, darning needle.



We made our adult sized sample to the pattern directions and used less than half of the yarn. One kit should furnish 2 medium sized slouchy hats (21-22″ head), or one large slouchy hat (23-24″) and one child sized hat. You can see our project notes on Ravelry.

New Free Pattern – Frolic Shawl

We introduced this pattern at the DKC Knitter’s Frolic last weekend and now we are making it available for everyone! It’s a quick & satisfying little spring knit, and only uses  2 skeins of yarn: 1 Noro Taiyo and 1 Berroco Remix
