Crochet shawl pattern made using a yarn cake, with gentle colour changes from green to chocolate brown. Yarn cakes give you all the beauty of stripes/different colours all in one ball, so you only have 2 ends to darn in.
Worked in Scheepjes Whirl Pistachi Oh So Nice, the Through the Pinewoods Shawl is inspired by the pinewoods that run along the coast from Wells to Holkham, bordering the beach. The colours, worked from the centre of the ball out, change from lightest green through emerald and khaki to chocolate. It suggests the light, bright, sun drenched leaves at the top of the trees, with the colour slowly saturating as the light filters through the canopy and down to the ground. It’s the memory of peaceful moments in shaded glades deep in the woods.
Of course, the pattern will work with Whirl in any colour and also with other yarns. 4 ply yarn is most suitable. The amount required will vary but, as a guide, each Whirl ball is 225g and measures 1000m. The ball band states 455m per 100g. DK yarn would also be suitable, as long as you choose yarn with plenty of drape and the appropriate hook (1 or 2 sizes smaller than usually recommended for DK).
If worked to the pattern as written with the recommended yarn, the finished size of the shawl is 155cm/61.25” at its widest point and 71cm/28” from top to bottom. Size can be increased or decreased, notes included on pattern.
Working to an exact gauge is not essential as long as stitch tension is consistent throughout and the shawl lies flat neatly after each row.
Suitable for intermediate level up. A very confident beginner with experience of basic stitches could make this but may need to refer to online tutorials/videos for assistance.
The pattern includes versions in both UK terminology and US terminology.
