The Shawl Saturday collection feautures five shawl paterns from Maddie's 2019 pattern subscription club inspired by the four seasons: Make Anew, Centaurea, Loanin, Winter Lights & Quincythia.

Save £9.50 when you purchase the collection, rather than the individual patterns, which works out at just £2.60 per pattern!


Join me for a knitting adventure through the year: discover a spring-time shawl fresh in design and colour, giving you just enough warmth for those crisp spring days; a simple summer shawl, ideal for the beach, lake or pool; a rich and cosy shawl for autumn, perfect for hibernating in; and lastly, a winter shawl, made with pops of colour to brighten up the dark days.

Each of the four main patterns are accompanied by an appealing sheet of hand-illustrated “Shawl Inspiration Notes” that gives you lots of exclusive behind-the-scenes information about how the design came about!

The patterns have been professionally tech edited, and include charts (plus written equivalents), schematics, and where relevant, links to video and photograph tutorials.

The collection includes:

SPRING: Make Anew Shawl
Forsythia, magnolia, daffodils, crocus, cherry blossom … all signs that spring* is here, or at least on its way. These plants regenerate every year; they lie dormant through the winter (or so it seems) and in the spring they bloom again, just like last year. This process of regrowth combines the familiar with the new: these plants regrow every year, which is familiar to us, and yet each time they do this they are producing new buds, flowers and leaves.
Join me on a knitting adventure where we’ll knit something anew, merging the familiar with the unfamiliar to create a fresh spring-inspired shawl. Combine colours that are new to you with those you’re accustomed with to knit a beautiful shawl using well-known techniques alongside a unique construction. Make anew.

SUMMER: Centuarea Shawl
How do you know that summer is here? Being able to wear your sandals non-stop? Certain flowers coming into bloom? Late sunsets? Warmer weather? Spending more time outside or going away on holiday?
The Centaurea shawl is partly inspired by the sort of tessellating patterns that you might see on holiday (think swimming pools, visits to historic buildings, cobbled streets) and the geometric patterns seen in nature, especially that of the centaurea family of plants (cornflower, knapweed, and starthistle, just to name a few).
Knitted in a light summer yarn, Centaurea is the perfect drapey accessory for the warmer months, and features a gorgeous lattice fringe, which is both fun to make and to wear.

AUTUMN: Loanin Shawl
During a particularly stressful autumn, my kids and I would walk past an apple tree on the way to school. We noticed that the windfall apples would fall from the branches into the gutter and roll down the hill, stopping on top of the drain at the bottom of the hill. When it rained, the apples actually floated down the gutter and we had great fun ‘helping’ them on their journey.
This small moment of joy is the story behind Loanin: a shawl inspired by finding small moments of joy in-amongst life’s difficult times.
Knitted with two strands of laceweight yarn held together, one wool and one mohair silk, Loanin is a gorgeously cosy autumnal accessory.

WINTER: Winter Lights
The inspiration for the Winter Lights shawl is the very simple idea of creating light in the darkness and in particular, the darkness that we experience during the winter months in the northern hemisphere. At this time of year, we often turn to lights, such as fairy lights, candles, lanterns and even fireworks, to help us ‘light-up the dark’. Asides from the practical reasons for lighting lights when it’s dark, I think candles and fairy-lights take on a symbolic meaning during winter. They represent the hope that the light will return in the springtime, and there is also something magical about lights and a sort of pre-historic satisfaction at being able to strike a match and create light!

BONUS PATTERN: Quincythia Shawl
Knitted in beautiful airy, naturally-dyed yarn from woollenflower, Quincythia is a light but cosy shawl, perfect for the changing seasons. Named after the spring plants whose flower colour matches the yarn (quince and forsythia), the shawl is mainly knitted in soothing garter stitch, with columns of slipped stitches and a ‘double-pass’ section to keep the knitter’s interest piqued.
The pattern includes written instructions, photographs, a schematic and has been professionally tech edited and test knitted. All of this will help you to create a shawl that you feel proud of and that is wonderful to wear.
