Tidings Shawl


Published in Knitvent 2020


The Tidings Shawl is an exuberant flourish of both comfort and joy: oversized and cosy, it knits up fast in cuddly worsted weight yarn.

The three-colour triangle Tidings Shawl features big stripes of texture, with sections of ribbing and a beautiful, easy-to-memorise stitch pattern.


It doesn’t really matter how they arrive. Tidings of comfort and joy come in many forms.

A handwritten card from a beloved friend.
A text message from a family member you wish you could see more often.
Good news you didn’t see coming, shared on social media.
A note you wrote yourself, tucked into an old notebook and discovered on an unexpected afternoon.

These missives of hope and love are always wonderful and always welcome.


It makes a magnificent gift for someone very special, but it’s such an enjoyable comfort-knit that no one could begrudge you getting too attached to give it away at the end.

You could also use DK weight yarn for
this shawl. I would recommend using 4.5mm (US 7) needles and it will result in a smaller shawl.


5mm (US 8), 100cm (40”) long circular
