The Tideline shawl knitting pattern is for an easy asymmetrical shawl that uses lace weight yarn but you could use any yarn weight you prefer. This shawl is knit in garter stitch so is really straightforward and brilliant for beginners. It's a simple two colour design using 2 balls of Blacker Breeds BFL lace. This is an excellent knitting pattern for beginners as there is minimal shaping. The skills required are: 

  • Knit garter stitch 
  • Decrease using k2tog. 
  • Increase using M1 (make one). 
  • Changing colours. 

The Tideline shawl is an asymmetrical shawl inspired by the British coastline and the work of potter Roz Dowen. She regularly uses colours and textures inspired by the sea and the beach near where she lives in West Wales. This shawl is constructed side to side in garter stitch with some simple but graceful colour changes throughout. The uneven columns represent the unevenness of nature and the constant change of the tide.

Gauge 34 rows and 32 sts per 4”/10cm square using 3.75mm (US 5) needles using garter stitch.
