About the Pattern

The yarn used for my original shawl was produced by Maria Allen on her smallholding in the maritime region of Nova Scotia in Canada but it knits to a dream using any of my sockweight yarns.

I have named the pattern "Seaspray" as it is meant to symbolize the waves of the Atlantic Ocean that seperates Pembrokeshire from Nova Scotia.

How it's done

To make this shawl I used 2 skeins, which amounted to approx 200 grams (8 ounces) of sockweight yarn.

I knitted it using a pair of straight 4.5 mm (Canadian size 7/US Size 7 needles). The tension is not that important but should be around 5 stitches per inch.

Thicker weight yarns would work well with this pattern giving a wider and heavier shawl. Your needle size would need to be adjusted accordingly as would the amount of yarn that would be needed to allow for the heavier/bulkier weight of yarn.

This pattern is for sale from the Woolhunter shop. I can either send it through the post or electronically in pdf format.
