Friendship Shawl KAL: March 2024

Welcome to the Malabrigo Dos Tierras Friendship Shawl Knit Along (KAL)!


The Friendship Shawl is a cozy, asymmetrical shawl with squishy texture and simple lace. Stripes that transition into mesh panels provide bold style that will stand the test of time. Designed in DK weight Dos Tierras - a gorgeous, single ply blend of 50% Merino Wool and 50% Baby Alpaca - the project calls for one skein each of three coordinating colors. The final measurements are roughly 64" x 35" depending on your personal gauge.

This is a great accessory project for advanced beginner knitters, but no one should be deterred! It is a wonderful opportunity to build confidence with shaping and yarn overs on a smaller scale, and we have tutorials to help you along the way!


The pattern is available through the malabrigo website. You register on their site and receive the pattern in your email inbox!

Our team curated kits for the Friendship Shawl that span a wide range of colors and styles. Pick your favorite or let the combinations inspire you!


We have plenty of Dos Tierras in stock to provide countless options to create your unique Friendship Shawl combination. While the pattern calls for three colors, it can be easily adapted for one, two, four or more colors! Let the colors speak to you!

The Friendship Shawl was designed by Jill Tamminen from Knit Sisu and presented to Malabrigo as part of an open call for designers. You can learn more about Jill on InstagramRavelry or via her website

Jill also did an interview with malabrigo that they share as part of the KAL pattern. It's always interesting to learn more about the design process and inspiration, and we LOVE the love that Jill has for local yarn shops.
