North Sea Shawl

North Sea Shawl

Love this pattern, very simple and very beautiful. Knits up quickly and looks beautiful once blocked. I wanted a bigger shawl than the dimensions written so added 12 extra stitches for more width and extra pattern repeats for more length (finished dimensions after blocking approx 200 cm x 55 cm).

North Sea Shawl, for me

The yarn is a perfect colour for this shawl. Can’t get it to show properly in photos so far, it’s not as grey as it looks here. It’s bluey greyey greeney, exactly the colour of the North Sea off the east coast of Scotland.
