Laurel is a gorgeous shawl which is part of my ‘Autumn’ mini knitting collection.
Difficulty: Knitter with more experience
Two tone version: The body is knitted in 1 x Rowan Fine Lace and the lovely lacy edging in 1 x Rowan Fine Art on 3.25mm (US 3/UK 10) knitting needles
One colour version: 4 x Rowan Kidsilk Haze and 5mm (US 8/UK 6) knitting needles
I have re-worked this gorgeous shawl in the glorious Rowan Kidsilk Haze and 5mm needles and the results are magnificent! The shawl is fabulously oversized and absolutely stunning. I just love how the burst of lace around the edge of the shawl is complemented by the beauty and simplicity of the body.
Two tone version - after blocking; the shawl measures approximately 134cm at the widest points and 60cm at the deepest point.
One colour version - completed shawl measures approximately 187cm at the widest points and 80cm at the deepest point.
