This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

After downloading so many lovely patterns myself that have been free, I have decided to make this pattern FREE as well.

Finished size: 1,8 m x 56 cm

Download and enjoy.

Please don’t hesitate to ask questions about it.

With my designs shawls can be made in different sizes.

Everyone can adapt the shawl so that it fits a child or an adult. It can be something for just around your shoulders or a fully sized shawl that will keep you warm on chilly evenings – or anything of a size inbetween.

My instructions will be kept as easy as possible, so that beginners can also follow the pattern. Gauge is not important.

Also because of the design different colors can be used. You can choose a single color, variegated yarn or make the design out of leftover yarn by using it on different parts of the pattern.

There is no limit to your own fantasy.

For this pattern I used:
2 skeins of Madelinetosh Merino DK in the color Moss
1 skein of The Fibre Company in the color Olive Leaf
Needles: US 10, 6 mm
Size: Adult

p1 purl one
k2tog knit two together

The first part of the shawl is the basic shawl, which can be knitted in stocking stitch or garter stitch.

The second part of the shawl is the fan and feather border at the bottom of the basic shawl.

The last part of the shawl compliments the basic shawl with fan and feather parts that are knitted on after picking up stitches.

Happy Knitting

I am happy to answer any questions.
