Autumn Woods is a large top-down triangle shawl with plenty of cosy texture.

The deeply textured ribbing looks different on both sides and is so enjoyable to knit you won’t want to put your needles down.

Strings of hearts run along the right side of the ribbing pattern, and the other side has vertical bands of small faux-bobbles.

Stripes and a lace border in contrasting colour offer a dose of colour therapy. Have fun choosing your colours!

Walcot Yarns Opus (70% Falkland merino, 30% baby alpaca; 325 m / 355 yds per 100 g). Two skeins of C1 and one skein of C2. Shown in colours Greenery (C1) and Grey (C2).

Or similar heavy fingering / sport weight yarn.

Colour 1 (C1): 624 m / 682 yds
Colour 2 (C2): 234 m / 256 yds

Size 4 mm / US 6 needles or size to obtain pattern gauge

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.

Gauge affects the finished size and the amount of yarn needed.
