Bough echoes the quiet beauty of nature during its winter sleep. Inspired by the leaves falling down the trees and the bare branches bending in the wind, this shawl celebrates calm cosiness.

Knitted sideways with worsted weight yarn, Bough has a versatile and wearable asymmetric triangle shape. Get swept into the calming rhythm of seed stitch and beautiful geometric lace, enjoying every single stitch.

Three skeins of The Fibre Co. Cumbria (90% wool, 10% mohair; 218 m / 238 yds per 100 g). Shown in colour Scafell Pike.

Or approximately 545 m / 595 yds of similar worsted weight yarn.

Size 5 mm / US 8 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.
