Folden Shawl

On Sale
Added to cart
Part shawl, part cowl, Folden is a shawl with a twist or two: get past the mid-point and the stitch count rapidly decreases towards the finish, which makes Folden a very motivating knit; and once finished, Folden is folded in half along the mid-line to reveal a striking picot edge.

Coming from a desire to knit something simple but with a twist, Folden has gentle garter and stocking stitch sections, with a row of eyelets in the middle, and tassels at each corner. Suitable for variegated, semi-solid and solid coloured yarn, Folden is that perfect mix of quirky yet easy knit. It's perfect for a single skein of hand-dyed 4ply/fingering-weight yarn.

The pattern includes full written instructions, links to helpful video tutorials to explain how to make the tassels, photographs, a schematic and has been fully tech-edited and test knitted.
