Shawl patterns

Oh, how I love a shawl. Satisfying to knit, cosy to wear. To be the first to know about new designs, sign up to the Woolly Badger mailing list.

Success! You're on the list.

Land Mermaid shawl

Like a classic pop song with a great key change, the triangular Land Mermaid shawl starts off simple, but gets a bit jazzy. The stocking stitch centre and contrasting lace panels make it both cosy and a little bit fancy.

It’s a great pattern for an advanced beginner who’s looking to step up their game. Trust me, it looks way more complicated than it is.

Beatrice shawl

With alternating lace and stocking stitch panels, Beatrice is a lightweight triangular shawl that’s perfect for both special occasions and summer evenings.

Knitted in a single skein of lace weight yarn on 4mm needles, its light, open weave and three panels of delicate lace are perfect for showing off the beauty of hand dyed yarns. Its simple top-down triangular construction makes it a great introduction to laceweight shawl knitting – or a soothing project for the more experienced knitter.
