The FibreFest Shawl 2018 has been designed specifically for FibreFest 2018 and was commissioned by the Knitters Guild NSW. The concept was to create a great base pattern for a shawl and encourage knitters to show off their creativity.

This is a boomerang shawl featuring panels of garter stitch stripes and eyelets separated by sections of diamond lace. The FibreFest Shawl 2018 is designed for fingering (4 ply) yarn and is very adjustable. There are two versions specified in the pattern, with two lace finishing options to choose from.

All instructions are written and charted. A handy tick-sheet showing stitch counts, pattern placement, and colour changes is also provided to help you plan your version and keep track of your work.

Yarn
Version A (Six diamond panels and MC final lace):
MC (speckled): 360m/394yd of fingering weight (4ply) yarn (I used 96g Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles at 366m/400yd per 100g/3.5oz col. Urchin).
CC (semi-solid): 400m/437yd of fingering weight (4ply) yarn (I used 106g Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles at 366m/400yd per 100g/3.5oz col. Purple Reign).

Version B (5 diamond panels and CC final lace):
MC (light greys): 225m/246yd of fingering weight (4ply) (I used Adagio Mills 4ply at 160m/175yd per 50g/1.76oz col. Clouds - 38g, Sonata - 28g).
CC (dark greys): 440m/481yd of fingering weight (4ply) (I used Adagio Mills 4ply at 160m/175yd per 50g/1.76oz col. Concerto - 42g, Stormy Grey - 46g, Forte - 46g).

Needles & Notions
Pair of 4mm (US 6). I like to use an 80cm/31.5” circular needle set but straight are fine also.
1 stitch marker (optional).

Tension/Gauge
21 sts x 32 rows to 10cm (4”) over garter stitch after blocking on 4mm (US 6) needles (Version A).

Finished Measurements
Version A (Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles): 66cm (26”) deep at centre x 250cm (98.5”) wide along top edge x 123cm (48.5”) along cast off edge (blocked).
Version B (Adagio Mills 4ply): 55cm (21.5”) deep at centre x 233cm (92”) wide along top edge x 120cm (47”) along cast off edge (blocked).

Special thanks to Sharon Holstein, Cynthia Mulholland, Kate Semler, Sally Webersinke, Diane Schnebli, Helen Horan, Joyce Fisher, Mo North, and our model Sarah Kassoumova, who were an amazing team to work with. Their generosity of time, skill, and enthusiasm made this project a joy to be a part of!

In this edition of the pattern the following corrections are required:

1) The chart letter is not indicated next to the stitch pattern that it corresponds to so here is the list to avoid confusion:
Diamond Lace Panel - A
Eyelet Lace Panel - B
MC Final Lace Panel - C
CC Final Lace Panel - D

2) Page 4, under Transition Garter Stripes where it is written to join in MC, it should be “If you have just worked a diamond panel, join in MC, and if you’ve just worked an eyelet panel join in CC.”
Then for rows 3 & 4 it should be “Change to CC or MC respectively.”
Then at the end “Cut CC or MC and continue in MC or CC respectively.”
