Silecroft Shawl in Knitting 228

Inspired by a beautiful stone wall on the coastal footpath near Silecroft Beach in Cumbria, my long, narrow crescent-shaped shawl is perfect for keeping cosy and warm during a leisurely walk! You can find the pattern in this month's Knitting magazine, issue 228. My shawl has been styled with another lovely pattern from this issue, the Vest Dress by Eline Oftedal - our cable and texture designs look so good together!

The different materials used to build the wall are represented in my drawing and by my textured cable pattern: smooth stocking stitch olds represent the larger stones, and an embedded twisted stitch pattern alternates between each large stone fold, representing the finer texture of other sections of the wall.

The Silecroft shawl is knitted with three skeins of gorgeous Cumbria yarn by The Fibre Company in the stunning shade of Catbells.
