Eda was my very first independent knitting pattern. Over time, I’ve learned a lot about how to not only craft a knitting pattern that is comfortable to follow, but also how to add small things that create a great aesthetic. There was so much I loved about that original Eda Shawl, that I knew I wanted an updated version of it with some small changes. The row repeat is smaller on this version, with knit/purl triangles that fit just a little bit more neatly in the shape of the shawl. I’ve also made it just one color, though a two-color shawl would still be lovely in this stitch pattern. This worsted weight shawl is very adjustable – make it smaller, with 600 yds/550 m, or make it the full 800+ yds/730+ m, which creates an almost blanket-like shawl to wrap yourself up in.
