Bench In The Clearing Shawl

On Sale
Added to cart
This is the sister shawl to Into the Woods. That shawl is all over lace in a laceweight yarn. This one is smaller and uses 4-ply, as well as being worked in stocking stitch for a significant part before using the larger leaf motif from its big sister.

The triangular shape is created using yarn overs at the edges and on each side of a centre spine stitch. Use stitch markers as recommended to keep track of these.

The shawl is worked in rows but because there are a large number of stitches towards the end of the shawl, using a circular needle (working in rows) is recommended.

There are both charted and written instructions.

Note that the shawl uses almost the whole skein, so please check your tension after about 30 rows – you can sometimes find that your actual knitting tension differs from your tension swatch. If it is looser than stated (fewer stitches to 10cm) please restart using smaller needles.

1 100g skein 4-ply yarn in wool, wool/silk or wool/ nylon (400m/100g). Copper sample: Townhouse Yarns Olla in Spiced Plum. Green Sample: Giddy Aunts Yarn Smooth Sock in Lamppost.
3.5mm circular needle with at least 80cm cable.
3 stitch markers.
Scrap cotton yarn.
3.5mm crochet hook.

Wingspan: 145cm. Depth: 72cm.

24 sts and 34 rows in stocking stitch to 10cm on 3.5mm needles before blocking.
