Over The Rainbow Yarn


Welcome to shawl club!

Shawl club is a 6-month knit-along series at Over the Rainbow Yarn. We’ve chosen one pattern for each month, and we’ll get together once a month (two session options available – both Sunday and Tuesday in the same week) to knit the same pattern at the same time. We’ll be able to discuss the pattern, knit and troubleshoot together. We’ll offer suggested yarns for each shawl, but you may knit in any yarn of the appropriate gauge.

Participating in Shawl Club is completely free!


This month, we’ll be knitting the Leftie Shawl, designed by Martina Behm.

Leftie requires 600 yards of fingering-weight yarn, and uses size US 1.5 knitting needles. You could choose two solid colors, or you could use a main color with variety of leftover scraps of colorful sock yarn for the small stripes.

You can purchase the pattern for $4.30 via Ravelry (we can do an in-store purchase here at the shop).

    • We’re excited to have you join us, Judy! See you on the 10th!

  1. Hi OTR gals,
    I see on your e mail it is possible to join you from afar.
    How do you propose this to happen, I am interested.
    I live in Pa and will be in NC for the second date.
    I have FaceTime capability.
    I have loved this pattern for many years but haven’t had the courage to attempt it on my own.
    I would consider myself an intermediate knitter.
    So I think your company would boost my confidence.
    I enjoy your newsletter and wish I lived closer, your company sounds like
    good company to keep.

    • Whoops mixed up on my dates.
      I thought this was 1 week from today.
      I am not prepared with supplies to start at 10 with you this Am😥
      Perhaps the next shawl.
      Thanks for letting me know how to join you from afar though.

    • Hi Lisa, Of course it wouldn’t be the same as knitting together in person, but we were thinking if you’d like to knit the Leftie shawl on your own at home while we’re knitting it here, then we could chat on social media. You could tag us in posts on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

      Joining “Over the Rainbow Yarnies”, the Facebook counterpart to our live knitting circles, would allow you to chat with other knitters too! Even if you start late, you’ll probably be able to find some people to chat with who are working on this shawl or who have worked on it before.

      Here’s a link to the Facebook group if you want to join:
