Due to changes to EU legislation with regard to Value Added Tax liability from 1st January 2015 I have decided to temporarily suspend pattern sales until it becomes clear what the best option for me will be. I will also be using this opportunity to develop some new patterns, revise layouts, make any amendments and take some new photos. I haven’t set a date for reopening my Ravelry store but it’s unlikely to be before early summer 2015. If you’d like to be notified when I reopen send my a personal message and I’ll add you to a list for earburning when I reopen.

This simple textured shawlette is named after one of my favourite authors, Dorothy Whipple. She wrote evocative novels about domestic life in the 1930s and 1940s which have recently been republished by Persephone Press in the UK. The shawlette is knit in a standard triangle shape with a textured inner border and an outer pleated ruffle border.

Whipple is knit in a traditional triangle starting at the centre of the long edge and working out and down. The garter and moss stitch creates a warm and snuggly fabric and the pleated edge adds a flirty touch
