palette yarn

This yarn is now being stocked by shops in the UK and there is a beautiful range of different colours and textures. Unfortunately apart from a few free patterns for hats and shawls there doesn't seem to be any other patterns. I've looked on the website and that doesn't mention patterns being available. Does anyone here know if patterns are available?

patterns.
I doubt it. I don't think Knitpicks ships outside of North America, and their yarn is not stocked in shops. They're an on-line yarn store.

They are now shipping to a store in the UK which has a website, and I believe one in Australia.

I'm not saying you're wrong - but here's the info from their shipping page on their web site, and this info is for their on-line customers. It says nothing about stores outside of the U.S. I actually got some Knit Picks yarn sent to me to send to a friend in Australia because she said she couldn't get it there. If you know the name of the store in Australia, I'd love to be able to pass it on to her. Thanks "We regret to inform you that we do not offer international shipping for our KnitPicks.com customers. We will continue to ship to all of the United States, Canada, all US territories, and all Military addresses that include an APO or FPO.
Our primary reason for this is that we are not able to provide our international customers with the same superior service we provide to our North American customers. We have not been able to locate satisfactory shipping options that will work for all 75 countries we were servicing for our other companies.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. You can still purchase from Knit Picks if you have a US or Canadian shipping address, such as a friend or a mail forwarding service. All payment is via credit card and our prices are quoted in U.S. dollars only. In this case, we can accept your order using your international address for billing, but a domestic address for shipping.
Again, please accept our apologies for not providing this service."

I guess I should have looked before I sent the previous post. They say they have international distributors, but only mention their Options needles. Here's what it says:
"We are working dilligently to bring our exciting Options needles to our international customers. The list below provides links to our partners in each of the countries listed. Please check back as we plan on many additions to the list in the near future. a.. Australia/New Zealand:

I see some patterns on the UK website, but none for (adult) hats.
Make some swatches, cast on and get started. A cap is just a tube with decreases at the closed end, you can fake something up.
A shawl ought to be easy enough as well: cast on 7, increase on one side at either end and center (four increases per right-side row) until it's wide enough, then decrease at center only until it is long enough, then you're done. Garter stitch will probably show off the yarn best, considering most of the yarn appears to be quite busy novelty stuff.
