Royal Mile - Digital download
Royal Mile Shawl begins at the center and is worked outwards to the border. It is worked in sections, alternating two stitch patterns: garter stitch and simple arrow lace. Almost all sections incorporate short rows which give it an asymmetrical shape. The sample shawl is worked in two contrasting colors but would look equally beautiful when knit in a single color.
It’s fully charted and has written instructions.
One: approx. 200.5 cm/79” wide and 40 cm/15.5” long at center.
Eden Cottage Yarns BFL Sock (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool; 400m/440y per 100g); 1 skein MC and 1 skein CC. Sample shown in Cromer Pier (MC) and Tide (CC).
3.25 mm/US #3 circular needle (100 cm/40” long).
2 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving.
22 sts and 44 rows = 10 cm/4” in Garter st measured flat after wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage so I strongly recommend making a swatch to adjust the needle sizes.
