Jarrahdale Shawl

This is a crescent, sideways shawl inspired by a unique stitch pattern that’s reminiscent of Jarrahdale Pumpkin leaves along the border. The yarn colorway is subtle and the striping colors blend delicately into the next color. The shawls lends itself to be draped over the shoulder to provide added warmth for those breezy fall days.

Pattern Notes

This shawl is worked sideways. It is increased over approximately the first 33% of the skein, worked even over the next approximate 33% of the skein’s total weight, and then decreased the rest of the yarn’s weight.

You will need to weigh your yarn on a yarn scale before and as you work the shawl. If you are not using a scale, you MUST swatch to get gauge and follow the repeats of the sample of 12/7/12 (Increase Section/Even Section/Decrease Section).

This is the size of the sample (51” x 13”), please keep in mind the size of your shawl will vary depending on your yarn yardage.

Pattern

Note: The sample was worked with 12/7/12 repeats. Please remember, you need to repeat the sections according to your own yarn skein yardage unless you have gotten gauge.
