A Retro-inspired half circle shawl with some texture, eye-lets, stripes and a ribbed border.
This Shawl features a small old school, flowery pattern that cuts up the otherwise monochromatic colour palette with a little bit of texture. To avoid too much romance, stripes and a ribbed border keep everything fresh and contemporary.
The increases are worked mostly with yarn overs that add vertical lines of tiny eye-lets to the horizontal bands of the design.
A fun combination of “granny-chic” and easy to wear shape to throw around the shoulders on cool summer evenings as a classic shawl or as an elaborate scarf around the neck during winter time.
All techniques and methods are either explained in the pattern itself, or links are provided that point to web-tutorials.
The whole shawl is worked seamlessly from the top down. It is worked in easy to memorise, similar sections: In total it has 9 Pattern repeats and a ribbed border all around.
This is why it's quite a straightforward project which does not demand much concentration.
The increases follow a very simple sequence logic that can be worked out after a couple of repetitions and that is easy to follow intuitively, so that one could effortless work on this shawl in front of the TV or at the beach!
