The DK weight Meadowview Shawl is an engaging knit that has 3 different textures which combine for a fun, stripey design. As I was knitting this up in earthy colors, it started to remind of the horizon over an open field and the texture mimics land, sky, and clouds. I have used Wooldreamers Dehesa De Barrera DK yarn for mine and they just have such a rich color palette to choose from. You will need a total of 4 skeins. I always enjoy knitting with blues and greens, but any color combination from this yarn line is a winner.
This shawl uses knit, purl, yarn overs and slipped stitches at the borders. I have included a few video links for tutorials for the kfb increase stitch, the bind off, and how to make the cute little tassels at the end. I highly recommend wet blocking your finished shawl to straighten out the edges and to get the eyelet stitches to open up.

Combining a good raw material from the livestock of Mr. Antonio Egea Colás and the know-how of Mantexman, we have created “a unique and authentic yarn made in Spain with Spanish wool”. And we are not only referring to quality, but also to traceability and the values that this project has. It is magical to see how this magnificent product reaches your hands from the sheep. It is a dream to be able to touch and wear this thread.
The Dehesa de Barrera collection follows the principles under which the Wooldreamers project was born and they are immovable. It is not just another thread, it is a thread that transmits values such as solidarity, appreciation for proximity and quality, for knowing where and who has made what you are weaving, etc.
It is a thread that wants to change consciences and help people who are seeing their wool losing value and leading to disappearance. A thread that, in addition to being of quality, saves millions of tons of CO2 emissions, thanks to the fact that it is made in Spain and with ecological energy.
We want to be something different and to help us value what we have. In short, a thread that transmits values:
Revaluation of Spanish wool.
We collaborate with people with different abilities.
Ecological yarn with OEKOTEX Standard 100 certificate.
100% traceability guaranteed. From the sheep to your hands.
We minimize carbon emissions compared to other yarns.
