The Knitter 126 - Glyndebourne

I'm a bit late sharing this design. No idea what's happened to blogging over the last two months. The Glyndebourne shawl was in The Knitter issue 126. I think the new issue is out this week so if you run to the newsagent you may still be able to get it. Of course you can still probably get it online (The Knitter has a digital app too - just do a search for The Knitter).

This pretty shawl is worked from corner to corner, casting on at one side and casting off at the other to create an asymmetric shape and a scalloped edge. It features a simple stripe pattern and bands of delicate lace along the lower edge and through the middle.

I used two skeins (one of each colour) of John Arbon Devonia 4ply. John Arbon is based in Devon and is just a couple of hours from where I live so it was great to be able to use a local yarn. 

This is what the John Arbon website says about Devonia: 'Our Devonia is a beautiful blend of 3 local breeds - Exmoor Blueface, Devon Bluefaced Leicester and Devon Wensleydale. The Exmoor Blueface is our local sheep and brings its wonderful springy nature, the Bluefaced Leicester lends its outstandingly soft handle and lustre to the yarn, whilst the Wensleydale adds its qualities of a beautiful golden sheen and fineness of fibre.'

Glyndebourne is fairly easy and perfect if you're new to lace or shawls. There's lots of garter stitch and some easy lace.
