My Barberry Shawl pattern is now available on Ravelry, LoveCrafts and Payhip! This shawl is a lovely accessory project, inspired by autumnal leaves and berries. Knitted in Carol Feller's beautiful Stolen Stitches Nua Worsted, you will need three skeins of the main shade and one skein of the contrast shade. There are so many gorgeous shades to choose from! Why not take a look at the full range of colours over on Carol's website.
The Barberry Shawl begins at the back of the neck and is knitted top-down to create a crescent shape. The centre panel features a cable and bobble pattern that is inspired by little clusters of berries and leaves. The cables form leaves by combining two- and three-stitch cable twists. The bobble berries are made over two rows, with stitches increased on the first row and decreased on the next row. The panel is bordered by two long lines of twisted-stitch ropes, and the curved shawl wings are knitted in stocking stitch with an eyelet pattern. The crescent wings of the shawl are formed by increasing six stitches on every right-side row: two stitches at each end of the row and one stitch on each side of the centre panel.
