Glowing colors, long lines and a border with a striking stitch pattern makes this shawl so very special. It is a long shawl, made to wrap around your neck or your upper body for warmth and beauty. You need a specially dyed yarn for the border; a yarn created for Assigned Pooling.

Assigned Pooling is a technique created by Dawn Barker of Barker Wool, where you assign a special stitch pattern to the areas of pooling.

This shawl is probably not the perfect First Project. You will need to be able to “read” your knitting, and also to adjust the stitch pattern on the go. If you are comfortable doing that, this is such an engaging knit!



One size



Approximately 264 cm x  64 cm / 104 x 25 inches



This shawl is half an oval – rounded, not too deep. See photo on page 6.

Color 2: 400 m fingering weight

Color 3: 400 m fingering weight

Color 4 (assigned pooling color): 400 m fingering weight

If you want to do a gauge swatch, I recommend you do it in color 3 – you will probably need everything of the other colors.

Note: This is a shawl. Gauge is not terribly important – find a fabric you enjoy and go with that! I do recommend a rather loose gauge to get a beautiful drape. Also be aware that yardage may change with a different gauge!
