This relaxing design was inspired by the beautiful south-east region of South Australia. Think rolling plains, gentle breezes and the dappled light of lazy afternoons. The Gambier Shawl is the perfect project for TV knitting, with nothing trickier than garter stitch, stockinette and some simple recurring lace. But if you also like eye-catching knitwear that is highly wearable, then this is the shawl for you!

FINISHED DIMENSIONS
Approximately 148cm (58 ¼”) wingspan and 68cm (26 ¾”) deep at centre, relaxed after blocking.

OR 4x100g skeins fingering weight sock yarn in a monochromatic gradient.

70g of Colour A,
55g of Colour B,
60g of Colour C and
