Laverton Shawl Knitting Kit 5

A kit to make the Laverton shawl by Victoria Magnus. Kit includes yarn needed to make the shawl, the pattern and an ECY cotton project bag.

Yarn included in this kit:

  • one 50g skein of Eldwick Lace in Larkspur
  • one 100g skein of Carlisle Fingering in Echinops
  • one 20g mini skein of Brimham High Twist in Heliotrope

This sumptuously soft shawl is a delight to knit, pairing three of our favourite yarns to create a beautiful wearable piece. The delightful halo of Eldwick lace adds a touch of luxury to this pretty accessory.

Worked from the top down, this shawl is the ideal canvas to explore your favourite colour combinations. For colour combination inspiration have a look at this blog post HERE

You can find all available colourways of the suggested yarns listed together HERE.

Needles and Accessories
One set of 4.5mm / US 7 80cm / 32in circular needle or straight needles (or size needed to obtain the correct gauge).

Size
One size (can be adapted) 
Finished wingspan: 234cm / 92 in 
Drop at centre: 35.5cm / 14.5 in

Gauge
14 sts and 30 rows to 10cm (4in) over stocking stitch worked flat, with a strand of MC1 and MC2 held together, after blocking.

The two yarns held together work up to roughly an aran-weight gauge. Matching gauge is not absolutely crucial, however if the shawl is made at a tighter or looser gauge you may get a smaller or larger shawl and use more or less yarn.
