Fibrefest Shawl & Scarf by Debra Kinsey Knits
FibreFest Shawl 2019
The FibreFest Shawl 2019 was designed for the NSW Knitters’ Guild FibreFest Event held in Singleton NSW on 26 & 27 Oct 2019.
The shawl requires average to intermediate knitting skills and includes a scarf option.
It is worked mostly in blocks of garter stitch interspersed with interesting eyelets and openings to create a semi-sculptural effect.
Two, three or even more colours may be used.
The shawl in earthy tones and bright coloured ends, uses 5 colours and follows the instructions for the basic shawl.
The purple-tones shawl uses 4 colours and the grey-tones shawl uses 3 colours. Both these shawls have had variations made to the basic pattern.
The bright pink scarf uses 2 colours and follows the basic pattern.
The instructions are for two-colour and three-colour versions.
To create a unique piece, all blocks except for the circle edging can be re-positioned or omitted and all block lengths can be varied. Instructions are included for making variations and are encouraged!!
There is a guide to yarn requirements should you wish to modify your shawl.
