Ebel Shawl – by Alice Sleight
Inspired by the colours and textures of Denmark’s North Eastern coast, the Ebel Shawl celebrates the Harvest Hues palette, and makes use of Barley’s heathered neutral and Woad’s rich blue to contrast between the sea and the shore.
Worked in garter stitch throughout, Ebel is the perfect travel knit and also provides an excellent canvas for showing your yarn off to its fullest! The rhythmic rows of garter stitch are interspersed with a number of stripe patterns, which create a relaxing but engaging knit. The Ebel shawl is worked flat from one tip to the other, gradually increasing at one edge until its widest point. The shawl is then worked straight before decreasing begins, mirroring the increase pattern. The longer shaped edge of the shawl is worked with a crochet bobble edging in a contrast yarn to finish.
