Interlude shawl is the perfect one skein wonder
Interlude is a masterpiece of delicate simplicity.
It’s lightweight, reversible and drapes beautifully.
You work this effortlessly sophisticated shawl from the top down with garter stitch and fishnet lace.
Interlude is a much-loved favourite among knitters around the world, with a mind blowing 600 projects on Ravelry! Have you knitted Interlude yet?
The pattern has both written and charted instructions, so you can use whichever you find easiest to follow.
You’ll need one skein (400 m / 437 yds) of fingering weight yarn for Interlude. Perfect for those single skeins in your yarn stash!
I used Eden Cottage Yarns Titus 4ply (70% merino wool, 30% silk; 400 m / 437 yds per 100 g) in colourway Falling Leaves for mine.
Wool and silk blends always work like a charm. For a dressier shawl with even more drape and shine, you could use a 100% silk yarn. Or if you want a more rustic and natural look, how about Brooklyn Tweed Loft?
I’ve also seen beautiful Interlude shawls knitted with Quince & Co. Sparrow (100% linen), as well as Malabrigo Mechita, Cascade Heritage and Plucky Knitter Primo.
When it comes to choosing yarn, the options are endless! You get to be the designer when pairing patterns with yarns. What yarn will you choose for your next Interlude?
