Light Nunthorpe Evening Shawl Emma Sadler

There is a little bit of a story behind the name of Nunthorpe Evening shawl which is a hap style shawl.

Recently I was at my local WI meeting and I was nervously stood at the front of this group of very talented ladies talking about how I design knitting patterns. This shawl was my current WIP and although it was still in the early stages, it created a lot of interest as I sat knitting it that evening. So I decided to name the shawl after the group – Nunthorpe Evening.

It has a traditional half-hap construction, with a garter stitch centre panel. This is surrounded by a much tighter, Shetland version of Feather and Fan stitch, finished off with a delicate lace edging. As the sections are joined by picking up and knitting or knitting stitches together, there is no sewing up to do to join the three sections.

The whole shawl uses 65g of mohair and silk blend laceweight yarn. I used Drops Kid Silk but it would look lovely in a different lace yarn.

The pattern includes a schematic, written and charted instructions. It has been professionally tech edited as well as test knitted.

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.

” a hap is an old Scottish word that means to wrap oneself up warmly “
