Return to Pebble Beach: Pattern Relaunch!

Pebble Beach Shawls

It’s here! The Pebble Beach Shawlette has grown up into a Shawl!

Remember this?

Pebble Beach Shawlette at Unwind Brighton

After winning the Unwind Brighton design competition last year, I released my Pebble Beach Shawlette Pattern on Ravelry. From there, it took on a life of its own. When a group of us cast on in the beautiful Pavilion Gardens under the shady trees, I had no idea that this little shawl would be such a hit.

I’ve really been looking forward to this re-release. It’s been wonderful to watch so many people enjoying this pattern, and with the one year anniversary of the original release approaching, I wanted to do something special. Many people wanted to knit larger sizes using lace weight yarn, or with two skeins of fingering weight, so the path was clear: I decided to design some more sizes for you.

The Pebble Beach pattern now has three sizes to choose from: the original Shawlette, a medium, and a large. The medium is designed for 600m/660yds of heavy lace weight yarn and the large is designed for 800m/880yds of lace weight yarn.

All three sizes have been set out in my much loved percentage checklist style so that you can keep on track from the first stitch right to the cast off.

Medium – green – The Uncommon Thread – Merino lace – colour Mermaid
Large – grey – The Uncommon Thread – Heavenly lace – colour Attic Room
