Sarah Jordan’s gorgeous Mini Maximization shawl is a crescent-shaped shawl features stripes that are created with addictive short rows, while a lovely open border, created as you knit, frames its top edge. Sarah created this shawl using FDW yarn, and we’ve carried kits for it since its release in December 2018. The pattern will remain for sale in Sarah’s Raverly shop, but we are now discontinuing the yarn and pattern kits for it. We’re listing the kits that we have remaining.
We dyed up two special mini combinations especially for the Mini Maximization pattern. Each consists of twelve minis: six semi-solids and six coordinating speckles. Sarah’s sample is knit from the warm hues of our Fall Semi-Solid and Speckled sets. My sample is knit from the Winter Semi-Solid and Speckled set, features cool shades in a blue/purple gradient. (Note that all colors in the Winter set are created with custom blended dyes. As a result, there may be some minor variations in the shading of the individual minis from set to set, however they will all maintain the architecture of the gradient.)
The third, fourth, and fifth photos show the minis included in the Autumn set. The seventh, eighth, and ninth photos show the minis included in the Winter set. All photos feature our Bounce base.
You will receive both the full set of the twelve minis in your choice as well as a pattern download code that is redeemable on Ravelry for the Mini Maximization pattern.
We are offering these sets on the following bases:
Bounce: fingering, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 80 yards per 20-gram mini

Please choose your color and yarn base choice from the drop down above.
Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
