Berroco Mrs Watson Summer Shawl Kit PRE-ORDER

PRE-ORDER KIT  (see below for details)

The Pattern

Designed by Martina Behm for Berroco, Mrs. Watson is a garter stitch shawl/scarf with a genius design. Feather-like stripes are created using short rows and an asymmetrical shape is achieved using strategic increases (don't worry, it only sounds hard, it's actually pretty straightforward).

We've gone through all of the colours for both yarns and paired them up with their best candidates for this project. If there is a combo that we missed, you can choose the "Choose Your Own Colours" option and leave us a note when you check out (or email us) with your choice. 

Modifications

We made our shawl a bit larger than the pattern (see Larger Size in the drop-down menuby adding an extra 3 pattern repeats in "Leaf Pattern 3" & "Leaf Pattern 4" (a total of 6 leaf patterns beween the two sections combined). 

We did not block our sample, but these yarns will block well can be blocked aggressively if you want to make your shawl larger. 

We did not carry the yarn up the side and don't recommend doing this - it left A LOT of ends to weave in and used up yarn unnecessarily.  We recommend following this tutorial on how to elegantly carry colours up the side: https://youtu.be/mDYQVKETTUw

Kit DOES NOT Include

Because the pattern is owned by an independent designer, we think it isin their best interest if the pattern is individually purchased and downloaded by each customer. If you have a hard time with this type of thing you can purchase the pattern through us and we will download and print it for you on your behalf (see the bottom of the drop-down menu for this option).
