YAL 2016

March 01, 2016

The YAL 2016 was near the beginning of the speckled yarn craze. Stephen designed the first shawl with a 3-skein fade design called Speckled Fade that sparked the craze for fades and collecting speckled yarn. AmsterBAM called things down as it was a solid showstopper of a shawl. It's a beautiful circular shape knit in lace weight yarn and it also doubles as a decorative throw for your living room. Sedimentary features Stephen’s signature shortcut row technique which leaves playful yarn over details throughout the fabric. The Yarn A Long is an exciting time because you often see new shapes or technique fascinations from Stephen that appear in his design catalogue afterward.

This Yarn A Long was the first season where you, the knitter, got to choose which color story you received. Instead of designing one color palette for each shawl, Stephen collaborated with the dyers on two custom palettes. Members received either all warm colors or all cool colors. Undercover Otter, Fru Valborg, and La Bien Aimée were the featured dyers and they all produced some truly stunning colorways.
