“Gwendoline” shawl has been designed especially for “Dubai Knits” fingering weight yarn called “Faith, Hope and Love”, a perfect mix of silk and merino. The beautiful yarn hand dyed by Jocelyn can be seen here

“Gwendoline” is shaped into a crescent and has a lovely cable and lace border running along the bottom. The shawl despite its looks is very easy to knit. The border is knitted sideways first and stitches are later picked up for the garter stitch body and worked bottom-up with short row technique used to shape it.
The serrated edge lends itself to beading if one requires more dressy shawl. Triangle beads size 5 are best to use with this yarn.

Size medium (63”/20”) shown requires 1.8 skeins (600yards), however, it is extremely easy to adjust by knitting more or less border repeats (all instructions are given).

“Gwendoline” is perfect for intermediate and advanced knitters, however, advanced beginners can try it as well.
The instructions are written and charted. I have also included a photo tutorial to help with the bobble making technique.

“Gwendoline’s” relaxed beauty is sure to add style to many casual or special outfits!
