Product description

We’re big fans of wool shawls in the fall – such versatile pieces keep you warm and comfortable, and are great accents for all types of layered wardrobe combinations. This triangular shawl is a texture-lover’s dream. The border features garter stitch, meandering cables, and short-row detailing. The main body fabric is worked in a lovely variation on Moss Stitch which creates balance for the more heavily patterned border. We hope Ashby keeps you warm this fall and winter!

Designer: Leila Raven

  • Pattern materials

    YARN

    Brooklyn Tweed Shelter – 100% American Targhee-Columbia wool (140 yards/128 meters per 50 grams)

    -OR-

    Brooklyn Tweed Tones – 100% American Columbia Wool (140 yards/128 meters per 50 grams)

    YARDAGE

    • Approx. 740 yards of light worsted weight wool yarn


  • Pattern specs

    CONSTRUCTION

    • Beginning at the left “wingtip,” the wavy cabled border is worked towards the center of the shawl; short rows are then used to create the corner turn that forms the bottom point at the base of the shawl. The right side of the border is then worked to the right “wingtip.”

    • Upon completion of the border, stitches are picked up along the inside edge of the border and worked in a textured knit-and-purl pattern. The body stitches decrease evenly as you work upwards toward top center neck.

    GAUGE

    • 4.25 stitches and 6.5 rows per inch over Main Body stitch pattern, relaxed after blocking


    NEEDLES

    • One 32″ circular needle in size needed to obtain pattern gauge
    • One 32″ circular or pair of straight needles one size larger than Gauge Needle (for Border)
    • Suggested sizes: US 8/5 mm and US 9/5.5 mm


    FINISHED DIMENSIONS

    • 66″ Wingspan, 33″ Height at spine, relaxed after blocking


    CONSTRUCTION NOTES

    • The horseshoe cable on the border section of this shawl reverses direction after the central corner turn; the cable twists on the second half of the border move “outward” rather than inward as given for the first half of the border. Please refer to the border charts for full details.


    Please note: the stitch patterns in this garment are charted only.


  • Pattern Updates

    Current Pattern: v4.0

    10 October 2018: (Version 4.0)

    On page 4, the following change was made to the wording: "the removable marker indicating where to begin picking up stitches for the Main Body should be placed on the garter ridge corresponding to Row 6 of Chart E (the last row before decreases begin)"


    11 September 2013: (Version 3.0)

    Chart E has SSK/SSP decreases on both RS and WS rows, so the chart LEGEND for those symbols have been updated to read:

    SSK: On RS, Slip 1 stitch from L to R needle as if to knit, replace this stitch on L needle in its new orientation and knit two together through the back loop. On WS, Slip 2 stitches to R needle separately as if to knit. Return stitches to L needle in their new orientation and purl them together through their back loops. (1 stitch decreased)  

    SSP: On RS, Slip 2 stitches to R needle separately as if to knit. Return stitches to L needle in their new orientation and purl them together through their back loops. On WS, Slip 1 stitch from L to R needle as if to knit, replace this stitch on L needle in its new orientation and knit two together through the back loop. (1 stitch decreased)


    16 October 2012: (Version 2.0)

    Page 3, second column: The Note under “Work Rows 1-42 of Chart E” has been clarified and now reads as “Beginning with Row 7, Chart E will decrease your total stitch count by 1 on every row.”

    Total yardage amount needed has been updated, based on several knitters using slightly more than the original amount listed. We now advise 740 yards/6 skeins of Shelter to be sure each knitter has enough yarn.

    On page 4, in the Main Body Section, Chart F Setup row was added. Also, a missing “purl” symbol was added to Chart B, Row 16, 6th stitch from the right.
