It’s knitted in Eden Cottage Yarns Pendle, which is super soft and squishy – a total joy to knit. Everyone raves about Vikki’s yarns, and quite rightly too. Look at that fantastic stitch definition!
I chose the medium size shawl from Rose’s pattern, but I was a bit worried about running out of yarn. So instead of making a wide and shallow triangle, with increases on every row, I went for a narrower and deeper version. I increased 4 stitches on every right side row, and re-drafted the charts to mirror the centre stitches at the sides. I’m really pleased with the result: I even managed to get pointy points, which you probably know I love.
The body of the shawl is mainly reverse stocking stitch with veins of twisted knit stitches. It shows off the leaf pattern a treat.
So that’s one of the four Yarndale haul used, with two laceweight and one 4-ply remaining. What’s next? I’m thinking socks…
