I challenged myself to design and knit a shawl inspired by my surroundings as I travelled in Germany, the Netherlands, and Romania. My eye was caught by beautiful cobblestone textures and a stunning red Gothic tower. Read more here.

Featuring colour blocks and changing textures, this triangular shawl is both bold and subtle. With chevron textures, unusual stitches, garter stripes, lace, and mock cables you’ll never be bored! Fun to make and flattering to wear. The final section is a simple 4 row repeat so that you can easily keep going if you want to have a larger shawl or use all of your yarn.

Charted pattern only. There is a link in the pattern to a YouTube tutorial for an unusual (but not hard) stitch used in the mock cables.

Skills Used:
•knit and purl
•M1L, M1R, yo
•ssk, k2tog, sk2p
•knitting from charts

Designed to use 2 skeins of Wollmeise’s fantastic large put-up, but any fingering weight yarn will work as long as you have enough yardage.

Approximate Yardage: (with a 15% buffer)
Colour A - 510 yds. / 466m fingering weight
Colour B - 414 yds. / 379m fingering weight
