Walcot Yarns

Gabardine

Regular price £5.00

Who says shawls have to be lacy and delicate? Ribbing makes a fantastic fabric for a casual, everyday piece that works with any style.

NOTES
* A slightly unusual shaping creates an extra wide piece with some curl at the edges for an enveloping wrap.

  • The pattern calls for 2 skeins of yarn, and the individual sections are set by yardage/yarn used. No counting of stitches required, but you will need a digital scale.

  • The pattern calls for different increases to be worked on the edges from those in the centre. If you prefer, you can use the ‘plain’ backwards loop M1 for all.

  • Throughout the pattern, slip markers as you come across them if not specified.

SIZING
One size
›› At tension and with yardage given, finished shawl is: 180 cm/70 inches wide and 53 cm/21 inches deep.

GAUGE

›› Tension is not crucial for this pattern. As long as you like the fabric that results, it will be fine, although working at a different tension will result in a different size piece.
