Botanic shawl by stephen west large striped wrap at the woolly brew

 Botanic Shawl by Stephen West, pattern available to buy on Ravelry


Just before Christmas I received a parcel. In it was this gorgeous shawl, kindly loaned by Susan.

The shawl is Stephen West's Botanic Shawl and it uses self striping Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy and the single colour Erika Knight Wool Local.

The shawl is generously sized and very wrappable. It is... GLORIOUS.

The garter stripes really show off the self striping Zauberball Crazy and it makes it very squishy. The slip stitches in the solid colour add striking perpendicular lines with very little effort.

The shawl starts with a few stitches in one corner and increases to a stripey border. You can easily make it smaller or even bigger.

This Botanic Shawl uses 2 balls of Zauberball Crazy in shade 2312 Piano Bar and 2 hanks of Erika Knight Wool Local in Gritstone.

We don't always have Wool Local but you could substitute for another solid colour 4ply. In fact, we have over 20 shades of Socks Yeah 4ply which gives you lots to play with!

To help you choose, I've put together some combos that I think will work well together.

The pattern requires 695m of Crazy Zauberball and 713m of Socks Yeah 4ply. So you will need 2 Crazy Zauberballs and 4 hanks of Socks Yeah 4ply (3 hanks will give 636m so you could fudge it and buy one less!)
