This striking garter stitch shawlette features a textured and raised center panel that resembles the fronds of a fern. The shawl’s name is also a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

“First you must find… another shrubbery! Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must place it here, beside this shrubbery, only slightly higher so you get a two layer effect with a little path running down the middle. (“A path! A path!”) Then, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forrest… with… a herring!”

It cracks me up every time. :)

This shawl or shawlette is sure to become your favorite go-to and statement piece in your wardrobe.

You need about 500 yards of Fingering weight yarn such as Brooklyn Tweed’s Loft (2 skeins of it). I used the color Tent to make the shawlette shown in the photos. I love this particular wool yarn for the shawl because it shows excellent stitch definition and isn’t bulky or heavy like some other woolen yarns.

The teal colored shawls were made using Malabrigo Sock yarn (just 1 skein) in the colorway Solis.
