If you purchase 5 of my self-published designs at the same time (they need to be in the same cart), you will get the least expensive for free!

Also, if you have purchased the Heart Warmer cowl before, or if you add both in the cart now, they will cost $8 together. The promo runs indefinitely. No code needed. Happy knitting!

Heart Warmer Shawl came to live as a larger sister design to a fun cowl I designed last year. It’s playful and uses just 2 skeins of Merino/Silk/Yak Singles, Heart Warmer Shawl is meant to be your go-to neck piece this winter and spring. Or even next :)

The shawl begins at the top center and is worked outwards to the border. There are two yarn-over increases in every row which create a long banana-like shape. The shawl is worked in sections, each featuring a different texture or lace stitch pattern.

Size
One: approx. 220 cm/86.5” wide and 60 cm/24” long at center.

Yarn
2 skeins of Martin’s Lab Tibetan Singles (65% merino, 20% silk, 15% yak; 480m/525y per 120g) or any other fingering weight yarn which gives you the correct gauge.
Shown in colorway Autumn in Poland.

Needles
3.25 mm/US #3 circular needle (100 cm/40” long), or size needed for gauge.
3.5 mm/US #4 circular needle (100 cm/40” long), or one size larger than gauge needles.
4.0 mm/US #6 circular needle (for BO only).

Other
2 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving.

Gauge
22 sts and 34 rows = 10 cm/4” in Garter st using main needle, measured flat after wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage so I strongly recommend making a swatch and adjusting the needle sizes as necessary.
