KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT
KIT for Arria crochet pattern 4 ply
The pattern structure is simple but effective and easy to memorise. It uses the intarsia crochet technique. With just three balls of yarn on the go throughout, it is a good beginner intarsia project.
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 or been given the pattern for Arria.
The tutorial takes you through the notions needed, shawl construction, key stitches used in the pattern, 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.
