Dangling Conversation 

New COTTON Zauberball!

That's right, you read that correctly! This long-awaited yarn is a 100% cotton version of your favorite magic ball! Dyed in some of your favorite classic Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball colors, you'll love this breathable, non-wool alternative for shawls. With the extra long color degradation, we think it would be an amazing match for the Dangling Conversation shawl from designer Mindy Ross. The pattern is sized for three varying sizes, and just ONE Cotton Zauberball contains enough yardage to complete the larger size. This one is intentionally knit on large needles, so it'll go quickly. Feeling a little glitzy? The pattern also includes instructions for adding beads and even includes a link to a video tutorial! There's so much chitter-chatter about "Summer's almost over"...but we Southerners alllllll know it's likely to be 80 something for at least two more months, so there's still plenty of cotton-knittin' time!
