The Fibre Co. Textured Shawl Pattern
A shawl that can be layered and draped around the neck and shoulders for luxurious warmth. This pattern, designed by The Fibre Co. Team, has the option included to work up in two possible weight options. Use yarn held double to create a luxuriously warm fabric with all the lightness of our heavy lace weight yarn, Meadow, or knit with just one strand for a weightless feel. A meditative knitting experience for your making, this piece includes simple increases and decreases to create texture for an accessory with a graphic but soft feel.

The gift of handmade is at the core of The Fibre Company's Foundations series of design collections. The patterns are simple, aimed at welcoming a novice knitter who has picked up needles and now wants to expand on what they’ve learned by creating something they can use. At The Fibre Co., they understand that these things take time and they want you to feel nothing but joy as you work with their yarn. In each design is a simple stitch or technique that will take you forward in your making journey. They’ve kept things as clean and clutter free as possible. The series is also about inspiring more advanced knitters with the overall shapes, textures and styling images to serve as a base upon which to improvise and expand or adapt to a personal aesthetic. They named it ‘Foundations’ because these are the building blocks for a lifelong hobby in which we can clothe ourselves and our loved ones in beautiful colours and texture. Love is all you knit, every stitch…Foundations.
