First Blooms is a light and airy one skein wonder for fingering weight yarn. It has a beautiful all-over eyelet pattern that’s fun and easy to knit. And there’s no purling!

The lace is only worked on the right side, and the pattern is easy to memorise after the first few rows. The picot bind-off adds delicate detail to the border.

You work this asymmetric triangle shawl diagonally from one tip to the opposite edge. The size is easy to modify. Simply work the pattern repeat until you reach your desired size.


One skein of Eden Cottage Yarns Hayton 4ply (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon; 350 m / 380 yds per 100 g). Shown in colour Ice.

Or approximately 330 m / 361 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.


Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Or size that gives you pattern gauge.

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.


20 stitches and 40 rows = 10 cm / 4 inches in garter stitch before blocking
