Wrap yourself in a vortex shaped garter stitch shawl in two colours. This beautiful shawl was our sixth MKAL with Yarn O’clock and ran during July and August 2021.

Slip stitch patterns, stripes and eyelet lace techniques make this a fun and engaging pattern to knit. The pattern is written, not charted.

There are two sizes to choose from and options within the pattern to help manage your yarn usage.

Sizes: 100 (128) cm x 87 (103) cm

Tension: 10cm2 = 24 sts x 48 rows over Part One pattern unstretched. Matching tension is not critical for the finished item, but this will affect the quantity of yarn required.

Suggested Yarns: Riverknits Chimera, 200m/50g, 1 (2) skeins and Riverknits Nene, 400m/100g skein 0.5 (1) skein, both British Bluefaced Leicester 4ply and hand dyed in Northamptonshire
OR 50 (100) g each of two contrasting 4-ply yarns.

Needles: 4.5mm circular needles or long straights – circular needles are recommended if making the large size.
