Do you like surprises?

The 2019 Woolenberry Shawl Club is now open! Join the club to receive 4 new shawl patterns inspired by the changing seasons.

This pattern is available exclusively on the 2019 Woolenberry Shawl Club.

Fall in love with the simple and clean lines of Waiting for Spring. This asymmetric shawl is worked in two colours in delicate yet decidedly modern stitch patterns.

You begin the shawl with relaxing garter stitch that’s punctuated by thin fishnet stripes. Then you switch to your second colour and work a wide, airy fishnet lace border with garter stitch stripes.

Have fun choosing your colour combo or make a chic monochromatic version by using a single colour throughout the shawl.

The pattern has complete written instructions and optional charted instructions for the lace border.

The shawl also looks great worked in a single colour.

Colour 1 (C1): 352 m / 385 yds

Or approximately 572 m / 625 yds for a single colour version.

Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Adjust needle size to obtain pattern gauge. Gauge affects finished size and yardage.

Shawl is worked flat but I recommend using a 100 cm / 40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
