DIY Dyed Slip Eyelet Shawl

Wrap yourself in gorgeous color this spring with a custom-dyed shawl that'll have all eyes on you! Knit and dye this beautiful piece with Tulip® Custom ColorLab™ lace weight yarn and yarn dyes.

Yarn Dyeing Instructions:

  1. Untwist yarn skeins and tie in three places with small strings of yarn to prevent tangling.
  2. Dampen yarn with water.
  3. Wearing gloves from kit, add water to dye bottles and shake to mix. Mix 2 bottles of Azalea, 2 bottles of Cool Pool and 1 bottle of By the Sea.  Dilute one bottle of Azalea. 
  4. Variegated Yarn:  Lay out on covered work surface in an oval shape. Apply sections of Azalea, diluted Azalea and By The Sea dye colors onto 1 skein, overlapping colors.
  5. Solid colored yarn: Submerge 1 skein of yarn in bowl with dye or apply Cool Pool dye to entire skein and work into yarn.
  6. Cover in plastic wrap to keep damp and let set 4 to 6 hours or longer. Once set, rinse thoroughly under running water until water runs clear and hang to dry.
