KIT for Arria knitting pattern 4 ply



Arria is knitted using garter stitch and intarsia (with only three balls of yarn). It’s a bottom-up shawl and easy to memorise after the first couple of repeats.

Please note that the kit is for the Mermaid colourway, not the Shroom colourway shown on the pattern.


What's in the kit:

  • 1 x hardcopy of the pattern
  • 1 x automatic digital pattern (sent immediately after checkout)
  • 2 x 100g of RiverKnits British Bluefaced Leicester 4 ply wool (see below for more information)
  • 1 x 20g mini skein of RiverKnits 4 ply
  • 1 x Fay Dashper-Hughes Designs embroidered bag


Pattern Tutorial: To accompany this pattern I have created a pattern tutorial. This is available through a private YouTube link that can only be accessed by people that have bought the pattern.

The tutorial takes you through the materials needed, shawl construction, key techniques used in the pattern (including three options for reinforcing your steek sts), blocking hints and getting in touch.

If you make this shawl please do upload your WIP and FO on Ravelry. It would be great to see it on Instagram too - #ArriaShawl #FayDHDesigns @faydhdesigns

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating

This product was originated by me at Fay Dashper-Hughes Designs.  I work with a local printer and they help me to source recycled paper for my patterns.  This pattern is printed on paper that is manufactured using wind power,100% recycled post-consumer fibre and carbon neutral.  The yarn is grown in Britain, spun in Peru and dyed in the UK.  The bags are made in China and embroidered in Cheshire, England

Postage and Packaging

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
