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!

  • 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)"


    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.


    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)
