Laurel is a gorgeous shawl which is part of my ‘Autumn’ mini knitting collection.

The body is knitted in Rowan Fine Lace and the lovely lacy edging in Rowan Fine Art.

I have re-worked this gorgeous shawl in the glorious Rowan Kidsilk Haze and 5mm needles and the results are magnificent! The shawl is fabulously oversized and absolutely stunning. I just love how the burst of lace around the edge of the shawl is complemented by the beauty and simplicity of the body.

Finished size
Two tone version - after blocking; the shawl measures approximately 134cm at the widest points and 60cm at the deepest point.
One colour version - completed shawl measures approximately 187cm at the widest points and 80cm at the deepest point.

‘Autumn’ was inspired…..well by autumn. It has always been my favorite season not only because it is my birth season and the air is fresh and crisp, but also by the stunning colours that nature produces. I wanted to capture the changing of the season in my design. Each piece pays homage to autumn with leafy designs and colours that capture the seasons hue.
