Walking in the forest, gathering the harvest, preparing for the darker months. Nature showing off with rich and vibrant shades before going to sleep… When you’re craving for something soft to snuggle into, nothing’s better than a warm wool wrap.

Big and beautiful, Malva is just the thing to have on your needles for a cosy and comforting project. It makes for a mindful and soothing knit with its soft all-over texture and wavy lace. Knitted in sport weight yarn, this shawl is sure to keep you warm on your woodland walks or on your way to the office.

Three skeins of Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy (100% merino wool; 320 m / 350 yds per 100 g). Shown in colour Wild Mallow.

Or approximately 932 m / 1019 yds of similar sport weight yarn.

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.
