New rectangle shawl Autumn Breeze is here!
Autumn Breeze is a sleek and modern rectangle shawl that’s relaxing and fun to knit.
It combines delicate lace with textured details and looks beautiful wrapped around your neck.
You knit this rectangle shawl with two different yarns, wool and mohair.
Both yarns are held together in the garter stitch sections that are decorated with vertical stockinette ridges. The chevron lace on stockinette stitch is worked with the mohair yarn only, for a lighter-than-air look.
I used 2 skeins of Sandnes Garn Sunday (100% merino wool; 235 m / 257 yds per 50 g) and 3 skeins of Sandnes Garn Tynn Silk Mohair (57% mohair, 28% silk, 15% wool; 212 m / 232 yds per 25 g) for my shawl.
You’ll need about 470 m / 514 yds of the wool yarn and 636 m / 696 yds of the mohair yarn.
But if you don’t like mohair, you can also knit Autumn Breeze with a single strand of fingering weight yarn. You’ll need about 2 skeins (200 grams) of fingering weight wool yarn for this modification.
Or if you want the same effect as the sample shawl, with chevron lace sections in lighter weight yarn than the garter stitch sections, simply use lace weight wool yarn for the lace sections and fingering weight wool yarn for the garter stitch sections.
My shawl is 51 cm / 20 inches wide and 196 cm / 77 inches long, but the pattern includes instructions on how to modify the width. And the length is easy to adjust by simply working fewer or extra pattern repeats.
The pattern has both written and charted instructions, so you can use whichever you find easiest to follow.
