Montville is the second in the Hinterland series of shawl designs. Intended to showcase yarns with long colour changes, its asymmetrical shape and simple lace edge allow your feature yarn to take centre stage.
The Montville shawl is worked sideways with the edging added afterward. It can be made in multiple yarn weights according to your preference. Suited to the confident beginner, simply choose your favourite yarn, grab a hook and get started!
Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
Approximate Size: 61”/156cm wide (around the curve) x 15.5”/40cm deep after blocking. Of course, this is a suggestion only. You can make yours as wide as you wish.
Yarn: Whatever yarn you like! This design can be worked up using just about any fibre and yarn weight. Cotton, silk, alpaca and bamboo blends would be the most ideal as they are more likely to drape gently. But if you are after a squishy warm winter shawl, 100% wool will also work beautifully.
Gauge: For this design, gauge is not critical.Simply aim for a soft fluid fabric suited to the yarn you have chosen.
Skill level: EASY
This is a project created using basic stitches and requires minimal shaping and finishing. It would be a great project for the adventurous beginner.
