Thames is an asymmetric triangle shawl. The textured body has vertical twisted stitch columns on reverse stockinette stitch. They create vertical stripes and add texture and rhythm. On the reverse side, you’ll have neat stockinette stitch with vertical lines of twisted purl stitches.

The delicate and crisp lace border adds an airiness to the shawl. You work the lace on garter stitch, so it has no purl stitches and looks good on both sides.

Thames is an independent addition to the Mix & Match – Rivers collection. You can knit Thames on its own. But if you also have the Mix & Match – Rivers collection, you have multiple options for creating your own shawl adventure.

With Thames and the 3 patterns of the Mix & Match – Rivers collection, you can create 16 different shawls!

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using a 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
