This sumptuously soft shawl is a delight to knit, pairing three of our favourite yarns to create a beautiful wearable piece. The delightful halo of Eldwick lace adds a touch of luxury to this pretty accessory and the splash of Nateby adds the perfect amount of sparkle.

Worked from the top down, this shawl is the ideal canvas to explore your favourite colour combinations.

Needles and Accessories

One set of 4.5mm / US 7 80cm / 32in circular needle or straight needles (or size needed to obtain the correct gauge).

Size

One size (can be adapted)
Finished wingspan: 234cm / 92 in

Gauge

14 sts and 30 rows to 10cm (4in) over stocking stitch worked flat, with a strand of MC1 and MC2 held together, after blocking.

The two yarns held together work up to roughly an aran-weight gauge. Matching gauge is not absolutely crucial, however if the shawl is made at a tighter or looser gauge you may get a smaller or larger shawl and use more or less yarn.
