Another beautiful shawl is coming from Casapinka: The Hug Shot Shawl!  For a limited time, June 5-7, the pattern is FREE with purchase of two hanks of yarn from hand dyers and local yarn shops.  So exciting!

The Hug Shot is a companion shawl to Casapinka’s Breathe and Hope shawl.  Its a little simpler, easier, but still with that classic Casapinka style.  Easy enough for beginners, but interesting enough for experienced knitters.

It is knit with 2 hanks of fingering weight yarn: Casapinka’s sample used a solid and a speckle (the PINK one).  My beautiful friend Maresi is making our sample with Fat Bunny Yarn Poppy in Lime Slice and Fat Bunny Yarn Lucky sock in Dolphin Day (the GREEN one).  They both look great!

The PINK one!

The GREEN one!


To get the FREE pattern, simply buy 2 hanks of yarn and the code for the FREE pattern will be emailed to you to download.  What a fun shawl that you can create with ease.  Lots of colors to choose from, although Casapinka recommends the PINK!

Poppy comes in 16 poppin’ shades and plays so nicely with other yarns like our Lucky Sock base or Leap Sport base.  I imagine it might be beeeeeeyoootiful with our Petal Silks, too.  If you need a little help picking 2 colors, please reach out or look at our Fat Bunny Page on Instagram where we’ve been posting color combinations.  We can’t wait to see the Hug Shot knit in Fat Bunny Yarn out in the wild.


Here’s the deal: Purchase any 2 hanks of Fat Bunny Yarn Poppy, Leap, Lucky or Petal Silks between now and June 7th and get the coupon code to redeem between June 5-7 for the Casapinka Hug Shot Shawl for FREE.
