Knitting pattern for a beautiful and fun shawl, that the fortunate recipients of our Advent Calendar received in the second package.
The advent shal is a narrow triangle, with cheeky increases in the middle and a new way to tie it on. A fun little something that can go around your neck twice and keep you nice and warm during this cold, cold winter. The shawl of course matches the hat from the first package, with the same simple and cool pattern.
The Advent shawl is knit in our own soft and sustainable yarn Önling No 2, 100% merino wool.
The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page. You will also receive an e-mail with a link to your pattern, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-)

Gauge: 20 sts and 30 rows in stockinette st with needle 4 mm / US 6 = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches. The rib pattern is very elastic and is impossible to measure, so knit your gauge swatch in stockinette st.
Directions: You cast on stitches and knit back and forth. You knit neat i cord edges on each side and increase for more width by yarning over on each side of two middle sts we call MS, on every 10th row. The shawl is the same at the front and back and reversed across the centre.
