Pattern Tutorial: To accompany this pattern I have created a pattern tutorial. This is available through a private YouTube link that can only be accessed by people that have bought the pattern for Doppio Colosseum.
The tutorial takes you through the notions needed, shawl construction, key stitches used in the pattern, blocking hints and getting in touch.
If you make this shawl please do upload your WIP and FO on Ravelry. It would be great to see it on Instagram too - #DoppioColosseumShawl #FayDHDesigns @faydhdesigns

This product was originated by me at Fay Dashper-Hughes Designs. I work with a local printer and they help me to source recycled paper for my patterns. This pattern is printed on paper that is manufactured using wind power,100% recycled post-consumer fibre and carbon neutral. The yarn is grown and spun in Devon and dyed in the UK. The bags are made in China and embroidered in Cheshire, England
Postage and Packaging
You can read all about P&P here.
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
