It’s Autumn, ’tis the season for splashing about with your wellies on, catching the falling russet leaves. Add a bright splash to your outfit on dull days with a Splish Splash Shawlette.
A simple garter st shawlette with a raindrop fringe. This shawlette is a great way to show off a skein of hand-dyed or self-striping yarn. The pattern is easily memorisable, so you can take it to the pub or work it up in front of the TV. It widens slowly, which makes it long and narrow, perfect to wrap around your neck a good few times and stop up any gaps the rain might find.
Size will vary depending on your tension and the amount of yarn you start with. The sample measures 26cm at the widest point, and the wingspan is 132cm. It was made with 2 balls (100g) of Regia 4-ply, but not to worry if you have more (or less) yarn: just increase till you have used up half your yarn, then decrease with the other half.
