Part of the Celtic Woodland collection, inspired by textures and colours in welsh woodlands.

A sideways knit, triangular scarf or shawl in two depths worked in one piece with an i-cord edging. The leaf patterned lace border is easy, with purling on WS rows. The ridged pattern for the main part of the shawl creates a textured contrast to the flowing lines of the border.

It is easily customisable for size and available yarn amounts and thickness as approximately half the yarn is used before starting decreases. An interesting, but not difficult knit for the intermediate knitter, which makes a versatile scarf / shawl either in sports weight or in a heavier weight yarn for a cosy winter wrap.

approx. 72’’ / 183 cm ( 88’’ / 224 cm) x 16’’/ 41cm (24’’ / 61cm),
using sports weight on 5 mm (# 8) needles.
Shown in Old Maiden Aunt Alpaca/Silk Sport/DK, colour Regular Guy, 2 skeins.

Sports weight yarn, approx 550 yd/ 503 m (740 yd/ 677 m).

26sts / 28 rows = 4 x 4” (10 x 10 cm) in ridged patten using sports weight on 5mm needles, before blocking.
Gauge is not critical and depends on chosen yarn and personal preference, but any difference is likely to affect the finished size.
