This Transitions Shawl, designed by Deborah Jarchow, is one of her most popular weaving patterns.
Featuring your choice of Transitions or Transitions Tweed, you’ll love how the magnificently rich colors flow from one to the next as you weave with this unique 4-ply, untwisted, DK-weight gradient yarn. The yarn’s four separate strands add to the light and airy coolness of this cotton and acrylic blend. Each center-pull cake comes in a box (Transitions) or a clear bag (Transitions Tweed) with the end already peeking out, ready for you to get started right away.

The two braids that designer Ariane Gallizzi incorporated into the Mamma Mia Shawlette were inspired by her mother and symbolize their lives together, side by side. Even though they live on different continents, they remain closely connected.
The Mamma Mia Shawlette is knit top down and uses a fun and easy technique to create the braids. The size of the shawlette is easily adaptable and can be knit in any yarn weight. Choose to add tassels for a more playful version or leave them out for a classic shawlette.
