Fennel is a generous rectangular shawl to wrap around your shoulders on a cool Summer’s evening. It features graphic moving panels using simple stitch patterns to give way to a luxurious expanse of moss (seed) stitch. Tubular selvedges finish the edges beautifully.

About the Pattern

The large dimensions of the shawl are created by stretching the shawl whilst blocking it. This creates a fluid, open fabric that drapes beautifully. Blocking wires will help you to maintain straight edges, however, a similar effect can be achieved by threading a piece of waste yarn through the edge and pinning the waste yarn rather than the shawl. If you prefer, you could just use a lot of pins.
