Scout Shawl Kit

  • Product Info

    These kits are for the Scout Shawl design by Florence Spurling. "Scout is an intricate, pattern-filled shawl inspired by the pieced-together aesthetic of vintage quilts. A dream project for colourwork lovers, Scout’s patchwork effect is achieved by mixing Fair Isle and intarsia knitting throughout. Knitted sideways from tip-to tip, the easy-to-wear shape and size of the shawl is designed to display maximum detail as it drapes over the shoulders."

    Kits are dyed-to-order and will ship within 2-3 weeks.

    Project details from the pattern:

    To help achieve a similar colour-effect to the sample, use these guidelines when creating your palette:
    C2 – choose a light neutral (e.g. white, cream, beige, grey, etc.)
    C1 and C5 – choose a lighter and darker tone in the same colour family (e.g. lighter pink for C1, and darker pink for C5).
    C3 and C4 – choose a lighter and darker tone in the same colour family that contrasts with C1 and C5 (e.g. lighter green for C3, and darker green for C4).

    • 3.5mm/US 4, 61cm/24” or 81cm/32” circular needle
    • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

    Gauge (blocked)

    • 28 sts and 30 rows = 10cm/4” in Fair Isle pattern after blocking.
    • I suggest using Chart 6 to knit a swatch 13 x 13cm/5 x 5” or larger to determine your gauge.
    • Always use a needle size that achieves the correct gauge.
