Northmoor Lock Shawl

Deceptively simple and addictive to make, this beautiful shawl is designed to showcase beautiful variagated yarns to perfection. It is worked from side to side to allow you to use up every ounce of that precious yarn. The shawl is fully reversible and easy to wear. An ideal first pattern, holiday or knit night project. It can be adapted to any size and different yarn weights.

The name comes from the campsite where the shawl was designed and made, sat around the campfire, chatting with good friends.

Sizes
Wingspan: 175cm/69in
Depth: 33cm/13in
Can be made to any size and adapted for any yarn type.

Materials
2x skeins of Manos del Uruguay, Silk Blend Fino (4ply, 70% wool, 30% silk, 50g, 225m) in Jewel (6881) 
3.5 mm (US E) hook. 
Can be made to any size and adapted for any yarn type.

Tension
17 sts and 13 rows in htr to 10 cm/ 4in using 3.5mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension) 
Tension is not critical to the success of the project but will affect finished size, drape and amount of yarn used.

You can use any weight yarn and resize the shawl as desired. It is recommended that you use a yarn with a lot of drape (such as silk, alpaca or bamboo) and match it with a hook, slightly larger than normally recommended to create drape in the fabric. 
To use up a special skein divide the skein into two evenly sized balls and continue increasing until the first ball has been used up.
