Beginning on November 30, Small Business Saturday in the U.S., the Interval Shawl digital pattern is free with minimum yarn purchase (five skeins of Arbor) at participating LYS Brooklyn Tweed stockists.

BT by Brooklyn Tweed patterns are skill-accessible knitting patterns written in a concise, visually appealing way. Spanning just four pages, each BT by Brooklyn Tweed pattern offers an entry point into the larger world of Brooklyn Tweed yarns and patterns.

We designed the Interval Shawl to be the perfect “first shawl” pattern for a new knitter using only basic techniques: the knit stitch, the purl stitch and the knit-front-and-back increase. The pattern also features a simple provisional cast on with links to a video tutorial demonstrating this technique.

The shawl is worked in two sections — the first, a textured garter dash pattern, followed by a border section worked using garter stitch ridges. Three basic sizes have been provided within the pattern, though the shawl’s modular design allows as many or as few repeats of Section 1 and Section 2 as you like, enabling easy customization of the finished size. We combined stitch patterns and fabric gauge specifically for our DK-weight Targhee Wool, Arbor. The yarn’s three-ply construction and smooth twist lend crisp stitch definition to the clean lines of the design. At a relaxed gauge of 5 stitches-per-inch, the finished shawl is a great mid-weight fabric for neckwear that keeps you toasty but doesn’t overwhelm.

Included with the 4-page pattern is a companion Stitch Count Guide (PDF) that can be used to double-check your stitch counts throughout the entire project if you enjoy tracking your progress.
