Memorable Mengham Shawl Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

This shawl begins with a traditional semi-circle construction, alternating between a solid and variegated colourway. But I wanted to play around a little bit with the shaping and so I introduced short rows. I am really pleased with the way the stripes from the beginning section and the short rows meet.

The construction is quite simple, including the use of the short rows, which means this shawl is perfect for knitters who are new to shawls, as well as those who want something they can pick up and put down without having to worry about concentrating or losing their place within a pattern.

The whole shawl uses 2 100g balls of 4-ply/fingering weight yarn.

About the Mengham Shawl Pattern

The Mengham Shawl is approximately 99 inches x 16 inches and is designed to wrap around the wearer to create the illusion of layers. I don’t know what it is about the name but it does make me thing of Gangnam Style, perhaps I should rename it Mengham Style? What do you think?

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.

“I knit, therefore, I am amazing.”
