The Water Shawl


Inspired by the colours of a churned up lake on a cold spring morning, and four gorgeous skeins of hand-dyed yarn! The Water Shawl is everything you want in a summertime knit…

Portable
Despite its impressive size it’s super-squishy, so it remains comfortably portable from cast-on to bind-off.

Intuitive
The pattern is easy to memorize, so most of the time you won’t even need to carry it with you.

Wearable
Thanks to a blend of alpaca, linen and silk, The Water Shawl has the perfect combination of lightness, summer-weight warmth, plus effortless drape and wrappability.

Flexible
The Water Shawl can easily accommodate more/less yarn, and less-than-perfect gauge. Guidelines for adjusting the size are given within the pattern.

This shawl is shaped like a right triangle, worked in three continuous sections from the bottom tip to the top edge. Section A is worked in C1. Section B alternates C1/C2. Section C is worked in C2. A modified I-Cord edging is maintained in C1 throughout, while a classic I-Cord bind off provides a thoughtfully balanced finish.

A chart isn’t really necessary, but I’ve included one for more visual knitters so everyone can indulge!
