Â The Andalusia Shawl has been published and is now available directly from this site or from Ravelry.
This fabulous crescent shawl uses just one 100g skein of fingering weight/4-ply yarn (shown here in Schoppel Wolle Zauberball in the shade Fuchsia). The pattern features notes on yarn choice and offers choices of a solid colour shawl or a striped lace portion, using either two different yarns or portions of the same graduated colour yarn (such as Zauberball, Mini Mochi, Noro and many others on the market).
The downloadable pattern features both written and charted instructions, so the knitter may choose whichever form of instructions they might prefer to follow. Also included in the pattern are extensive notes and instructions on blocking to achieve the perfect finish, with fully annotated schematics and measurements.
The clever crescent shape of this shawl allows the curve of the inner edge to sit comfortably and gracefully around the back and shoulders and can be worn in a number of flattering ways, both as a shawl and a scarf.
Andalusia, for which this shawl is named, is famed for both its flamenco dancers and beautiful sunsets, and both influences are brought to mind in the undulating waves of the lace, reminiscent of the full skirts of the female dancers, and the sumptuous colours of the yarn.
The shawl is a relatively quick and simple knit that results in a finished object with a big impact. Spoil yourself to a satisfying knit by treating yourself to the pattern and knitting up a special skein of yarn.
