Rocky Shore shawl
The shawl is worked from one corner, increasing to the middle and then decreasing to the far corner. This means that it is easily customisable to the size you want and/or amount of yarn you have, you work the increasing sections until the shawl is half the size you want or (just under) half your yarn has been used up and then work the decreasing sections. The same applies to making the shawl in other weights of yarn.
The pattern has both written instructions and charts. Detailed descriptions are included and video tutorials are available for the more unusual stitches used.
• Fingering weight yarn in two colours, 370m/405yds for the main colour (MC) and 350m/383yds for the contrast colour (CC).
• 3.75mm/US 5 circular needle with an 80cm/32” or longer cable.
• One stitch marker (optional).
• Tapestry needle to weave in ends.
Size of finished shawl:
Length 212cm/84.75", width 42cm/16.75", relaxed after blocking.
Obtaining gauge is not essential, as long as you are happy with the fabric you are getting. Different gauge will affect the size of the finished object and the amount of yarn used.
The sample shawl had a gauge of 20 stitches and 18 rows in a 10cm x 10cm (4” x 4”) square, after blocking.
Stitch abbreviations and chart symbols are based on those developed by Nancy Marchant.
