Scone Shawl + knitscene
You can purchase the Scone Shawl on the Interweave Website here.
Last fall I submitted two design ideas for the knitscene Winter 2019 issue and I had to pinch myself as both ideas were accepted. The first was the Porta Pullover which you can read all about here, and now I’d like to share the Scone Shawl.
The Scone Shawl is large, warm shawl knit in a worsted weight yarn and features a diamond leaf lace stitch pattern that incorporates the increased stitches perfectly. I love that it’s the perfect size to throw over your shoulder while apple picking, or protecting yourself from the cold on winter mornings in the office.
Scone is knit from the bottom up from the smallest triangle point to the top edge. Worked entirely in the diamond leaf lace stitch pattern, increases are formed with yo’s at each edge to create the triangular shape. Because of the easy construction, the the shawl can be easily customized to be as big as you want. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I love big shawls!
The sample was knit with Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts Lascaux Worsted, a 100% wool yarn. We used the color Emerald, which is a lovely jewel toned yarn that will be a standout in your fall wardrobe and stash. Scone requires only 2 skeins so this is a quick knit project that can be great for budget conscious knitters and makes a great gift!
I still can’t believe that I have two designs in this magazine. I feel so incredibly blessed to share my designs with you, and am incredibly humbled to be a part of this issue with so many other talented designers! Makes my imposter syndrome flare up a bit.
