Hand Dyed Pothos Shawl – by Sonja Bargielowska
We adore RiverKnits’ deep saturated jewel tones, so are over the moon to be collaborating on some super swanky limited edition shades of Exmoor Zwartbles together… Sonja has knitted this glorious shawl using Blue Tit as the main colour, but we think any of the other shades would be equally fab!
Spring is just around the corner and this playful bird inspired palette Becci’s created is bringing the sunshine!
Exmoor Zwartbles – Hand Dyed by RiverKnits, 4-ply (60% Zwartbles, 40% Exmoor Blueface; 400 metres per 100g)
MC: Blue Tit; 4 skeins
Harvest Hues, 4-ply (65% organically farmed Falklands Merino, 35% Zwartbles; 400 metres per 100g)
CC: Blue Spruce; 1 skein
Note: Sonja has used two different bases for a fun textural difference, but Pothos would also work well in two shades of the same yarn.
Sizing and Measurements
Wingspan: 228 cm / 90 inches
Depth: 46 cm / 18 inches
Pothos is knitted from the centre out, so it is easy to increase or decrease the size by either adding or omitting repeats of the main body – please bear in mind that doing so will alter your yarn requirements.
Sonja designed this shawl to be reversible, by playing with Garter Stitch on what are traditionally the right and wrong sides of the fabric. As there is no right or wrong side, this pattern refers instead to Side A (SA) and Side B (SB).

5 stitch markers (including 1 unique marker), Darning needle to sew in ends
