This shawl was designed for my Mum’s 70th birthday present. She lives on the south coast of England on a small island – Hayling Island. She is allergic to some natural fibres and so I decided to use soft acrylic baby yarn for her.
It has a traditional half-hap construction, with a garter stitch central panel. This is surrounded by a border and finished off with a delicate lace edging. The colours and shapes remind me of the Island; the dark blue of the centre and edging represents the sea which surrounds the beige of the sand and pebbles on the shore, the green of the countryside and the light blue and white of the sky.
The whole shawl uses 175g of 4ply baby yarn, of which 110g was the MC used for the central triangle and lace. The border section is ideal for using up small amounts from stash. You could chose to use more or less colours.
The pattern includes a schematic, written and charted instructions. It has been professionally tech edited as well as test knitted.
The Cowl comes in one size and uses 150g approx of sport weight and around 25g of lace weight. I combined a smooth sport weight with a mohair lace weight to add a textural element as well as a change in colours.add to cart show cart

As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear.
