An elongated triangular shawl with a softly ruffled edging and contrast border. The main body of the shawl is worked from end to end, stitches are then picked up along the shaped edge for the ruffle. Suitable for adventurous beginners and more experienced knitters alike. The alternative crochet edging is suitable for beginners.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 160cm (63in) across, 30cm (12in) deep at centre including the ruffle. Note: These measurements are taken from the finished and unblocked shawl – I prefer the texture of unblocked garter stitch. However if you want a deeper or longer shawl, blocking will achieve this.

You will need 100g/400m/437yd of Britsock in the main colour and 20g/80m/87yd of contrast colour.

The shawl is worked from end to end, then the ruffle border is picked up. You will need a circular needle at least 120cm/48in long.

The shawl is finished with a contrast edging in either knitting or crochet. You will need a 3.25mm crochet hook for the crochet version.

Mini skein knitted version.
The main body of the shawl is worked with 8 mini skeins.
Change colours after row 6 of the pattern repeat at 26, 37, 45, 52, 45, 37 and 26 stitches.

Work the ruffle with the remaining mini skeins, using russian joins to use every but of yarn.
