Coldharbour Mill in Uffculme, Devon is just up the road from where I live. It is one of the oldest mills in Devon having continuously woven fabric since 1797. The Mill also spins on site pure new wool on its heritage machinery with colours inspired by the beautiful Devon countryside. This shawl started out in two colours but it just didn’t look right so I started again in this beautiful blue called Sea Foam.
The pattern is both charted and written and is designed for a double knit yarn.
There is both written and charted patterns for this shawl. You will need to know how to knit, purl, knit stitches together, pass slipped stitches over, yarn overs, working a picot edge although instructions are provided and working between markers.
