Ammonoid Shawl Pattern now available on Payhip and Ravelry!

The fantastic Ullcentrum 2ply shades of Petrol and Natural Gradient are now in stock at Midwinter Yarns which means this is the perfect time for a pattern launch!

Combining a "half-pi" construction with a "knitted-on" border creates the fascinating shape of my Ammonoid Shawl!

The ridged border begins with a narrow section and gradually widens, allowing the beautiful shades of the natural gradient yarn to gradually emerge

The Ammonoid Shawl pattern was originally published in Knitting magazine Issue 215 and is now available on Payhip & Ravelry.

When I was creating my ammonoid shawl pattern leaflet I took many, many photos of the shawl from different angles. The images I chose for the leaflet show the shawl draped on my dress form and laying flat. These images clearly show the shawl pattern and layout and help knitters understand the instructions. 

However, this shawl also looks amazing worn "upside down"! The strong graphic lines of the design mean that it can create dramatic effects depending on the orientation of the semicircle and ridged sections.

Just goes to show that shawls are incredibly versatile accessories!
