Heights and Valleys Shawl
The Heights and valleys shawl is a comforting knit with a very easy and memorisable cable and lace pattern running down from the neck. It is finished with a garter stitch border and an i-cord bind off. The sample uses a rustic, woollen spun yarn which is a delight to work with. In times of ups and downs in life, there is something very soothing with the authentic feel of wool running through your hands. This knit made me feel better about myself during both happy and more trying times in life, and I expect its warmth to lead me through all of the heights and valleys of my days. I sincerely wish the same for you.
300 gr of sport weight yarn. Yarn used is Visjö from Östergötlands Ullspinneri in Sweden, 300 m/100 gr, in the colourway Vitgrå (White-grey), an authentic, rustic woollen spun yarn. Yarn weight is not important, but be aware that using a different yarn weight will require a different amount of yarn.
19 stitches and 30 rows = 10 * 10 cm / 4 * 4 inches, knit flat in stockinette. Gauge is not critical for this pattern as the size is easily adaptable.
4.5 mm / US size 7 circular needle, 100 cm / 40 inches long
The shawl is a slightly elongated half circle, 170 cm / 68 inches wide and 65 cm / 26 inches deep.
8 stitch markers, darning needle and cable needle, although I give instructions for cabling without a cable needle, which speeds up your knitting considerably!
