Wychwood Shawl


Sometimes a bit of simple knitting is all you need. This top-down triangular shawl is perfectly light and warm, and works up quickly with little fuss. Great for adding a pop of colour all year round. Use any yarn you like, simply adjust the needle size – one or two sizes larger than the ball band recommendation will help you achieve a supple, not too dense fabric.

One; 60” wingspan x 24” depth at center / 153 x 60cm

    I love it, especially the blue version! I made a shawl similar to this last year and it gets tons of wear and lots of compliments. It’s a great idea to use the laceweight held double.

    This is more of a question than a comment….am I knitting the border after the body of the shawl is completed or as I’m knitting the body?
