It was whilst I was designing and making this shawl that I kept thinking, it reminds me of a Custard Cream biscuit, (so, I obviously just HAD to go buy some, and I really had forgotten how lovely these traditional biscuits are, the perfect dunkers, with a nice cup of tea) …… and so the shawl was named, the Custard Cream shawl.

This sweet treat of a shawl is fabulously textured and uses simple stitches to wonderful effect. I hope you love a Custard Cream as much as I do!

I had 30g left of a Scheepjes Whirl, tassels included, a total of 960metres of yarn. The Whirl is 1000m in total length and is 4ply.

The shawl is worked down, from the centre top and the finished measurements after blocking are; 184cm x 70cm

The pattern is available in both UK terms and US terms.
