Royal Wedding Shawl


the Royal Wedding Shawl pattern is now available from here. The Limited Edition Royal Wedding Yarn is here

Pics are courtesy of Fyberspates.

The shawl is rectangular and starts with a provisional cast on (any can be used). The main body is then knitted and sts are left on a waste yarn rather than cast off at the end. The edging is knitted on around the shawl. The shawl features hearths for love, horseshoes which traditionally signify good luck at weddings, rose buds and the Queens Edging is modified from a version in one of Barbara Walkers books.
It takes just one skein (1000m) of laceweight yarn. Cast on now and you could be wearing it (or at least knitting it) while watching the Royal Wedding. Once we get back from Wonderwool I'm thinking about casting on for a version for myself.

We're off to Wales in an hour or so. Car needs to be packed. Almost all the yarn is dry. Just a few skeins that won't make it. Everything is packed. I've still got some patterns to be stuffed in envelopes. right now i'm trying to sort out knitting to take and some pattern work to do in B&B tonight.

Have a lovely weekend and see you in Wales if you're coming.

Have got my pattern. The shawl is very beautiful and it seems from a quick read throught the pattern that even I should be able to knit it.
