Designed by Florence Spurling, the Scout Shawl is a showstopper!
This beautiful colour work shawl was inspired by vintage quilts and is a dream "patchwork" knitting project for Knitfolk. Although it looks intricate, this shawl is an achievable knit that will remain your wardrobe favourite for years to come.
The Scout Shawl mixes both Fair Isle and Intarsia knitting and is knitted sideways from tip to tip, knitting from one block to the next block twisting yarns as you change.
If you love colour work, we know you will love knitting this shawl.
We have put together a very special kit that includes 5 beautiful fingering weight yarns all dyed for us by Madeline Tosh and packed in our new yarn project bags. Yarn colours were selected to be as close as possible to the original colours that Florence has chosen as follows:
C1 - 1 skein of "Pink Mist Smoke Tree"
C2 - 1 skein of "Paper"
C3 - 1 skein of “Librarian’s Dreams”
C4 - 1 skein of “Joshua Tree”
C5 - 1 skein of “Rocinante”
Colours 1, 2, 3 and 5 are Madeline Tosh Merino Light and colour 4 is Madeline Tosh Twist Light. Every skein measures 420yards/384metres.
Pattern details: Your kit includes a printed copy of the pattern in addition to a soft copy which be emailed to you directly.
