a simple shawl...

casually pinned - shawl pin in the shop!

very simple increasing and some eyelet rows

worn with the point at the front

This shawl is worked top down.  You start with 3 stitches and increase 6 stitches every alternate row using yarn overs.  This shawl takes 1 ball of Louisa Harding's Amitola - a wool silk blend with long colour repeats.  1 ball!

By soaking the shawl, gently squeezing out the water then stretching and pinning it - you greatly increase the size and open up all the yarn overs.

The pattern is very flexible - you can do no eyelet rows or more eyelet rows... just make sure you have enough yarn to cast on!

Pattern and yarn available in the shop!
