What is Savoie Shawl?
Savoie Shawl is a lovely way to explore the beauty of knit and purl combinations while making yourself an easy-to-wear shawl that will sit perfectly around your shoulders.
Work the drape (body of Savoie Shawl) in seeded chevron; the movement of the stitches adds intrigue and allows the hand painted yarn to work to its best effect. Move on to 2×2 rib along one of the long edges of the drape to get a perfect “collar” which can be left flat or rolled into an easygoing rolled neckline and front. The front bands put the perfect polish on this piece. Use the video link to learn backwards knitting to make that last detail take less effort.
Made from one skein of Anzula Luxury Fibers Squishy, you will love wearing this. Lightweight and just open enough to wear wherever you are going. Suggestions are made for making Savoie Shawl larger; the pattern is for one size.
Finished length at bottom 45″ / 114.4 cm; finished length of rib 27.75″ / 70.5 cm
Finished depth 13.625″ / 34.6 cm
