Doris Bundle by Kat Goldin of The Crochet Project with Koigu
The Doris Shawl is a beautifully elegant knit from The Crochet Project. We made a super jazzy version with KPPPM yarn by Koigu, and have created bundles for you to create yours just like it!
In this bundle:
2 x Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino in 1050 81 (blue)
2 x Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino in P118 A275 (rainbow)
1 x paper pattern

My grandmother Doris was 5 feet tall, wore polyester dresses and sensible shoes. If you saw her and didn’t know her, you would assume she was just another unremarkable, sweet little old lady. You would be wrong.
Grandma was feisty and unexpected and this shawl is a small homage to her. Its stripes, short row wedges and alternating stitches should always keep you interested. – Kat Goldin
