A laceweight shawl in the beautiful Gleem yarn!

Fyberspates Gleem is a blend of 55% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 45% Silk. It comes in gorgeous hand dyed semi-solid shades.

The shawl is a large elongated semi circle with a simple eyelet border. The laceweight yarn creates a lightweight fabric and the shawl shape is versatile.

This is a good next steps project for those looking to tackle a larger laceweight project. You do need a circular needle to hold all your stitches... but you could start with a straight needle before knitting them onto a 80cm (or longer) circular.

You can see our Gleem collection here. And check out our other laceweight yarns too.

Pattern free with any purchase and available for download soon.

Measures - approx 200cm long, 50cm at deepest

Yarn
- Fyberspates Gleem x 1 hank. You could also use Rowan Fine Lace x 2 balls (1 ball would be a good size too, just work less of the border, so you don’t run out!) Or for a striking stripey shawl, try 1 ball of the Schoppel Laceball 100.

Needle - circular 3.5mm x 80cm (At least). Click for our circular needle range.

Techniques
- cast on; work flat - back and forth; knit;purl; increase - knit, yarn over, knit into same stitch; yarn overs; knit 2 together (k2tog); cast off loosely.
