A large, cosy shawl knitted in a lofty single ply yarn. It wraps generously around the wearer, providing warmth without weight.

The suggested yarn - Oyster Yarn’s Maven - is a soft and sumptuous blend of merino, yak and silk, making it perfect for next-to-skin wear.

A simple stitch repeat makes for soothing knitting and is easily memorised, suitable for most levels of experience. The border is finished with a sweet eyelet and spine stitch detail and tassels.

This is a written pattern.

This shawl uses a Garter Tab cast-on, which is a lovely, seamless way to integrate your cast on into the shawl’s edge. Instructions are provided.

The stitch patterns in this pattern are beautifully simple. For this reason, written instructions only, not charts, are included.

An 80cm/32in circular needle should accommodate to total stitch count throughout this pattern, however if you are finding it difficult to manage the increasing stitch count comfortably, you could change to a 100cm/40in circular needle at any stage.

Golden Plains has been professionally tech-edited and test knit.
