Winter Walk Shawl - one size - easy/intermediate
Winter Walk Shawl is a super-warm stocking/stockinette and garter stitch shawl. It is perfect for those blustery sea walks when the surf’s up, and can be worn as a scarf or wrap over the top of a Winter coat, or as a cosy shawl on days that aren’t quite so cold.
An easy/intermediate knit – skills needed are cast/bind on and off, knit, purl and increasing a stitch with yarn forward. The design and stitches are quite simple, which makes this pattern accessible to all levels, except perhaps the absolute beginner - confident beginners and intermediate knitters will be fine! Photos are included throughout, with line-by-line instructions, in English with British/US terms.
Super-chunky/super-bulky yarn knits up quickly and is so warm. One size.

I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 5 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
