Cornish Thrift Shawl Printed Pattern

£6.00

This is a Printed Pattern

The Cornish Thrift Shawl looks fabulous in two shades of hand dyed yarn, highlighting all the subtle changes in colour. There is the option for a two or three skein version.

The shawl starts with just three stitches and increases are made on the wrong side along one edge. Place a locking stitch marker on the wrong side of the work early on to identify on which side increases are made.
A larger needle and contrasting yarn are used to work the Thrift pattern. To help you keep track of when to increase, note one stitch is increased for every garter ridge or stripe of Thrift cluster stitches.
To make the most of your yarn if you have any remaining you can continue in pattern for the final sections of Thrift Stitch and Garter Stitch.
If using the recommended yarn, the shawl can be wet blocked to open up the texture stitches and give you the largest size possible.

Heath

£4.25£6.75

Heath

£4.25£6.75

A luxurious blend of non-muleised merino lambswool and mohair in a 4ply weight, single ply yarn.  It has a rustic, homespun look but is next to the skin soft with tweedy nubs of colour giving it a great depth and richness. It makes light, hardwearing and warm accessories or jumpers with a gorgeous halo and is ideal for colour work. The yarn is spun with a light spinning oil and will bloom and soften on washing.
We really recommend that you sew in ends and wash all tension squares before measuring to get the true size and feel of the sample.
As a single ply yarn, to minimise twisting we recommend laying the skein over the back of a chair when winding into a ball – or you could coerce a friend.

Ball weight and length –approx  50g./200 m. 25g/100m
Recommended needle – 2.75mm-3.75mm
Fibre – 70% merino lambswool,  30% mohair
Washing – Hand wash only using a mild detergent. The yarn is spun with a light spinning oil which needs to be washed off.
