Marigold is a V-shaped shawl inspired by crochet. It is made of 20 flower shaped pieces which are attached to each other as you go, on the bind-off round, using a variation of the centre double decrease. No sewing or crocheting is needed.

Pattern tech edited by Rachel Brown / porpoise.

Skills needed
Working in the round, increases, decreases, picking up sts, long tail and backward loop cast on.

One size
Wingspan: 140 cm/ 55 in
Depth: 36.5 cm/ 14.5 in
You can make the shawl larger or smaller by making more or fewer flower pieces.

(measured after blocking)

  • 27 sts and 38 rows = 10 cm/ 4 in, with 3.5 mm needle(s) in stockinette st

  • one flower piece is 16 cm/ 6.25 in wide, measured across the centre from the edge of a petal to the edge of the opposite petal

Gauge is not crucial in this pattern, but a difference in gauge will affect yarn amount you will need.

2 skeins of Malabrigo Sock (100% merino wool, 400 m per 100 g, shown in Ochre) or similar fingering weight yarn. Use yarn that blocks well.

Needles and notions:

  • one 3.5 mm (US size 4) circular needle 100 or 120 cm/ 40 or 47 in long
  • one set of 3.5 mm (US size 4) DPNs
  • 1 st marker
  • yarn needle (for weaving in ends)

Take time to make a gauge swatch. Adjust needle size, if necessary.
