Top 10 Patterns: Number 4, Folden Shawl

First published in 2017, this pattern has had a wee resurgence recently thanks to Jess of Ginger’s Hand Dyed, who knitted-up her own ‘free style’ version as part of featuring me as Summer Designer at Ginger Twist Studio. You can find Jess’s version by searching the #foldenshawl hashtag on social media.

Folden is a great pattern for people who are new to shawl knitting and it’s also a lovely relaxing knit for those who are a bit more experienced. Plus it’s a fantastic design for using up leftover 4ply/fingering-weight yarn: you could knit one in 10 x 10g, 5 x 20g or 2 x 50g and you could stripe different yarns or knit your Folden in blocks of colours. There are lots of possibilities for being creative with this pattern!

Plus, Folden has tassels, which are great fun to make and a good way to use up leftover yarn. I have a video tutorial on my YouTube channel to show you how to make the tassels and you can also find it on the Tutorials page of my website by clicking here.

The Folden Shawl pattern is available to purchase by clicking here for my Ravelry Store or clicking here for my new Payhip Shop.

    I love that your pattern got some new exposure. I think more hand-dyers should look beyond the ‘hot now’ designs to showcase their goods. There are some really great patterns out there if you dig around a bit. I love the tassels.
