Rosaleen Shawl

The Rosaleen Shawl pattern is now available to buy.


It was the first design for the The Knitting Goddess Christmas Club and it was originally knit with their lovely Silk & Alpaca blend in a gorgeous grey called Dove.


The shawl is knitted from the bottom up, starting with the lace border, the body of the shawl is shaped with short rows to make it a crescent shape which can be worn as a traditional shawl or wrapped around like a scarf. When we were at Fibre Flurry we spotted Brenda wearing hers 'in the wild' and very lovely she looked too!


There is also a larger version which needs about 450 yards of yarn - I used 2 skeins of MadelineTosh Tosh merino DK which I've had for a while, the colour is Geode, its a purple with gold undertones, impossible to photograph accurately but stunning in real life!



You can buy the pattern here:

The pattern is also available in the Winter One collection - this will include all the patterns from the Christmas Club as they become available as well as additional co-ordinating patterns, there will be 8 patterns in total, they will be released approximately every 2 weeks for the next 2 months.
