At Kelbourne Woolens we are always trying to find new ways to support our stockists. Local yarn shops are the lifeline of the yarn industry. Our program, Yarn Shop Love, is our way of supporting our local yarn shops and stockists. This pattern, and all of our Yarn Shop Love patterns, will be available exclusively through participating yarn shops.
Last month, we unveiled a new yarn shop appreciation program, Yarn Shop Love, and this month we have a new installment. The Galway Scarf is a great way to learn, or brush up on, some great techniques. Using just two skeins of The Fibre Co. Knightsbridge, this little scarf is a quick knit, but one that will keep you on your toes. Cables, eyelets, twisted stitches, and bobbles are used to great effect - softened by the subtle heathered warmth of Knightsbridge. Inspired by Aran style knits, this scarf is anything but rustic. The yarn is buttery soft, and incredible warm, while still lightweight and breathable. Knightsbridge is truly one-of-a-kind.

Just in time for the Galway Scarf release, we have four NEW colors of Knightsbridge. We have always loved the classic heather look of Knightsbridge, and these four colors round out the palette wonderfully, and provide great opportunities for colorwork. We hope you like them as much as we do.
These four colors are available to ship to your LYS now, just in time to knit yourself a Galway Scarf for the holidays!
