Pink Peppercorn Shawl Kits

Less Traveled Yarn

These kits are for the Pink Peppercorn Shawl by Julia Parlette-Cariño. To design this shawl, Julia used Hot Pants as her main color, and Barley as her contrast color. I've included this kit as well as 3 additional options to choose from!

Project information from Ravelry:

PINK PEPPERCORN is a cozy asymmetrical triangular shawl worked in worsted-weight. It is knitted from side to side with an easy lace motif and mini bobbles scattered across its generous width, culminating in a cushy brioche rib. With a vibrantly-hued spice like the pink peppercorn it takes inspiration from, this shawl is bedecked with tassels and pompoms (optional of course!).

Pink peppercorn as an ingredient originated in Peru and has a mildly spicy bite with sweet, fruity undertones. Everyone in my family loves to eat. At home in my kitchen, I rarely go by recipes. I love experimenting with unusual combinations and I’m delighted when the results go over well. I’ve tried to reflect these unusual combinations in the design of this knit, creating an explosion of textures and techniques.
