  • Weatherhouse is a simple triangular shawl featuring a bold, striped pattern and multi-coloured tassels. Commencing with a garter tab, the shawl is worked from the centre top with increases at either side of the spine and the side edges. After stocking stitch stripes are worked, an eye-catching striped slip-stitch pattern follows and, finally, a striped garter stitch border. The shawl uses only 25g of each shade, making it a great way of using up small amounts of yarn. The shawl was inspired by a book of the same name, The Weatherhouse by Nan Shepherd, first published in 1930.

    Weatherhouse is knitted using Susan Crawford Bluem Sock or Susan Crawford Lock and is shown here in two colour ways.

    Colourway One (Bluem Sock) uses shade:
    Hay Bale, Apple Blossom, Undergrowth, Baling Twine, Rock Pool, Farm Gate and Room of My Own.

    Colourway two (Lock) uses shade:
    Le Ferre, Lydia, Asheham, Orlando, Tide, Malus and Red Sky at Night.

    The pattern includes both clear written pattern directions, together with charted instructions.
