Bough echoes the quiet beauty of nature during its winter sleep. Inspired by the leaves falling off trees and the bare branches bending in the wind, this shawl celebrates calm cosiness.

Bough has a versatile and wearable asymmetric triangle shape. It’s knitted sideways with worsted weight yarn. Get swept into the calming rhythm of seed stitch and beautiful geometric lace. You’ll enjoy every single stitch.

You can also get Bough in the 2017 Shawl Club collection.



Three skeins of The Fibre Co. Cumbria (90% Wool, 10% Mohair; 218 m / 238 yds per 100 g). Shown in colourway Scafell Pike.

Or approximately 545 m / 595 yds of similar worsted weight yarn.


Size 5 mm / US 8 circular needle. Or size that gives you pattern gauge.

Shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using a 100 cm / 40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
