3 skeins of “Ysolda Blend no. 1”, bought last year at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, with its great stitch definition, seemed perfect to revisit and further develop the feather pattern that has intrigued me ever since designing “Be Confident” cowl.
Transferring this very expressive stitch pattern into a flat item with visible beginning and end proved to be a rather interesting endeavor, since it now sported wavy edges.
And so “Schwarm” 1 was born, a shawl knit from its tip to the wide part in this feather pattern that now looks like a school of fish moving in unison, with a textured section trailing behind like stirred-up water!

The shawl is fully reversible and can be made in any size, any yarn weight.
The thicker the yarn, the bigger the fish!

* Ysolda Blend no. 1 (50% Wool – Merino, 40% Wool – Polwarth, 10% Wool - Zwartbles): 100g/ 345 yards [315 meters]. 3 skeins or approx. 790 yards [725 meters] of any sport weight yarn that knits up to gauge.

  • US 4 [3.5 mm] 40” [100 cm] circular needle
  • Tapestry needle

One size fits all:
Finished measurements: length (outer edge): 63” (160 cm); depth: 28.5” (72 cm).

18 sts and 36 rows per 4” (10 cm) in garter stitch after blocking.
Gauge is not essential; however, with a different gauge, actual finished measurements and total yardage will change.

3 Knäuel „Ysolda Blend no. 1“, letztes Jahr mitgebracht vom „Edinburgh Yarn Festival“, erschienen mir wie geschaffen, um das Wellenmuster von „Be Confident Cowl“ noch einmal näher zu ergründen. Dabei stellte sich heraus, daß dieses ausdrucksstarke Muster flach gestrickt wellige Ränder ergibt und wie ein Fischschwarm aussieht, der im Gleichtakt durchs Wasser streicht: ein „Schwarm“ von einem Tuch, von der Spitze zum breiten Teil hin gearbeitet und vollkommen wendbar, außerdem in der Größe anpaßbar und für beliebige Garnstärken geeignet. Je dicker das Garn, desto größer werden die Fische!

  1. “Schwarm” is German for “school of fish”, and coincidentally also the word for a person you have a crush on.
