Fyrish Shawl Knitting Pattern
Fyrish’s rippling waves of colour flow as far as you let them. This unusual narrow shawl (or is it a wide scarf?) tucks neatly under your coat, but can be puffed up to make a beautiful statement just at the neck. Or you could knit a longer version for a dramatic wrap.
This distinctive openwork ripple stitch makes the most of Blackisle Yarns’ deep hues and soft handle. And if you find those strong gaps and scalloped lines suggest gothic arches… well, you should come visit Fyrish some time.
Wingspan: 165 cm / 65 in
Depth: 35.5 cm / 14 in
The pattern requires 390 m / 426 yds fingering weight yarn for the main colour, and 97 m / 105 yds in two contrast colours. This versatile pattern is perfect to show off a beautiful luxury fibre yarn, but could be made from any fibre that will block well.
