PDF knitting pattern

When you want a shawl you can mix and match, Thebarton is a go-to choice! Not only can you knit it out of a fingering or DK weight yarn, but you can apply optional tassels and the simple texture is great for both playing with colour or keeping things neutral.

DK weight version: approximately 156cm (61 ½”) wingspan and 70cm (27 ½”) deep at centre spine, relaxed after blocking.

119m (130yds)/33g of CC, or extra MC if you are making a one-colour version (as for sample).
