Springle Ring is a beautifully soft and warm shawlette/scarf. Using a luxurious blend of mohair and silk, as seen here, produces a garment that is light, beautiful and a real pleasure to wear. Perfect to give a lift to dark winter coats and jackets, and airy and smart enough to wear over a dark sweater in a chilly office or at home. It is lovely to knit, simple but with enough detail to keep your interest. The name was inspired by one of my favourite books, Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and refers to a pretty dance performed by the Shire Hobbits.
Pattern includes instructions for an Aran/Worsted weight version if you would prefer a larger shawl.

Size: (Lace Weight) After Blocking.
Wingspan approximately 72 inches/183 cms
Centre depth: approximately 17 inches/44 cms
Large size will depend on chosen yarn.
Worked flat, turning after every row, from the top down. An applied border is then added which casts off the long edge as you work

Small size: Approximately 860 yards of lace weight yarn, holding two strands together throughout. Example used Rowan Haze Stripe, in the Lush colourway. I used two 50 g skeins, pulling one strand of yarn from each and had a little left over from each skein.
4.50 mm needles. Circulars recommended to enable enough space to accommodate all the stitches comfortably.

Large size: NB: Only one strand used for this size. Approximately 100g of Aran/Worsted Weight yarn in main colour and 150 g in contrast colour for border. Yardage will depend on chosen yarn.
Recommended yarn Malabrigo Worsted/Aran.
5.00 mm needles. Same recommendations as for smaller size.
Large eyed tapestry needle for weaving in ends
