Squall Line Shawl



Rosemary (Romi) Hill

The Squall Line Shawl is a cuddly oversized shawl incorporating the Wind-and-Shore stitch pattern (from the book) as a knitted-on edging. On this one, I explored how a heavier-weight yarn changes the nature of a lace stitch. The center triangle uses a lace pattern worked on both the front and back sides, but combining this potentially difficult patterning with a heavier yarn makes the stitch just fly off the needles.

Finished Size 78″ wide and 37″ tall.

Yarn Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted (100% merino wool; 210 yd [192 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #98 Tuareg, 5 skeins.

Needles Size 9 (5.5 mm): 32″ circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); cable needle (cn); tapestry needle.

Gauge 16 sts and 21 rows = 4″ in charted body motif.
