Crisp, cold mornings, piles of golden leaves and conkers to collect, who else loves autumn? As it gets cooler a cosy shawl to keep you warm is a must too.
Introducing Earthward my latest shawl pattern. Earthward is a triangular shawl knit sideways from one corner. This shawl features a cascade of leaves which form a wonderful edging. I chose a gorgeous superwash merino DK from Black Elephant yarns, they have some wonderful shades, a great alternative would be Malabrigo Caprino, or a more budget friendly Drops Merino extra fine.
This shawl is also completely customisable with regards to size, I used 465yds (425m) of yarn and my finished shawl measured 50″ along the top edge and 30″ at the deepest point (127 x 76cm) but you could make this shawl much larger (or smaller) and the pattern includes instructions on how to do so.
Earthward is the eighth pattern in The Changing Seasons ebook, buying the ebook gives you huge savings on the patterns. Alternative you can buy the single Earthward pattern on Ravelry here or Payhip here.
