Wonderful days strolling through artisan fairs, fleamarkets and festivals, that’s where the inspiration for this design was ignited.

Flohmarkt is a large shawl with a lovely soft drape that will behave any way you wish to wear it and it will look eye catching wherever you choose to wear it. Soon to become your wardrobe staple and perfect for all seasons with any yarn colour combinations.

I have also extended this design element into a fun and (quicker to knit) cowl. Please look here for Halle

The pattern is easy to follow with lots of photos to guide you through the steps. A fun challenge for the advanced beginner or a stimulating knit for the intermediate and experienced knitter. If you prefer you can use 2 circulars or Magic Loop instead of DPNs.
