Pool Shawl, English

33,00 DKK

The Pool Shawl got its name from the subtle rib pattern that I learned at a pool in Dubai.

It is a long narrow shawl that can be knit in exactly the size you prefer. In the pattern I give some measurements for various amounts of DK weight yarn, but you can basically knit this shawl in any amount of any type of yarn – the perfect stash-buster!

I even used a tiny ball of left-over cashmere that was too good to go to waste. With just 15 grams of sport weight cashmere, I was able to make a tiny shawl that I use as a shawl cuff!

Suggested needles

5 mm / US 8, preferably circular needles




18 sts x 21 rows in subtle rib = 10×10 cm / 4×4 inches after blocking.


Needle size is only a suggestion! Change your needle size to achieve gauge – but then again; this is a shawl so you can also forget about gauge and just create a fabric you like!
