Decemberist is a big super chunky triangle shawl - super cosy and super quick to knit... less than 10 hours!
The pattern is by Melanie Berg and is available to buy on Ravelry.
I knitted this shawl in 2017 using 4 balls of Wendy With Wool Super Chunky.
Unfortunately Wendy yarns disappeared for a while but some of them are now back.
With Wool Super Chunky is a good economical super chunky yarn and I'm glad it's back.
It's perfect for quick projects and BIG projects (it has a good meterage for a small price). And I get to show off this stunning shawl again!
BUT - the colour I used in 2017 is no longer available. Confusingly it is the same number and name but it is a different colour.
SO until I get a new shop sample, this Decemberist will remain in the shop 👇 .
Decemberist features a lovely lace pattern.
Lace needs to be stretched to open up the holes and reveal the pattern. Normally with a natural fibre I would soak the item in Eucalan, squish out the excess water and pin the item out. You can see an example here.
Wendy With Wool Super Chunky has 25% wool and 75% acrylic. Given the high acrylic content I blocked this shawl differently - I didn't want the yarn to flatten or become over stressed. So I steam blocked the shawl using this tutorial, obviously pinning it out in a triangle shape!
From Wendy Wools this super chunky yarn is great for quick knit and crochet projects - garments, accessories and homewares.
With Wool is 25% wool blended with 75% acrylic fibres and has a plush feel - soft to touch and machine washable.
Knitted on big needles With Wool Super Chunky projects are quick to knit or crochet. We have a big super chunky shawl sample in the Pittenweem shop and in our online Gallery here.
