CAMPFIRE SHAWL

Hello lovlies, here at Pom Pom HQ, we’re in the throes of finishing up Issue 2! We are so excited to share it with you – we can hardly wait. More on that soon, today we wanted to share with you another free pattern. We’re nice like that!

The photos for this rather lovely shawl were taken at the same place as the photos in Issue 2, so it’s like a little preview of what’s to come. It was shot at The Fellow, a great eatery and cocktail bar (!) in that hub of London, King’s Cross. They are really truly lovely people for having us, and you can bet we’ll be back for some Pimm’s on their terrace before the summer is out.

We are picturing all of you wrapped up in cosy Campfire Shawls on late summer nights, toasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories. Say you will! Go ahead and download the PATTERN, and then make sure you join our Issue 1 KAL on Ravelry before the end of the month – if you post a picture of a finished project from our first issue in the group, you will be entered to win 2 skeins of beautiful yarn to knit the shawl with, courtesy of the lovely and generous Old Maiden Aunt!

If you’re liking what you’re seeing here, watch out for pre-orders of Issue 2 soon or or get yourself a subscription from our Etsy shop now, if you haven’t already!

Thanks to Juju Vail for the stunning photos, and the drop-dead gorgeous Jenny Block for being our superstar model. They rock, don’t you think?

happy knitting,

    Question on this pattern. I am still pretty new at knitting and so still not the greatest at reading patterns. Is the Central Decrease supposed to happen on both sides of the center stitch? I really want to make this shawl from my Grams she thinks it is beautiful as do I but I am row 3 and my stitch count is off already so I know I have done something wrong. I have 328 stitches not 325. Thank you for the help.

      Hi Linda!

      “Question on this pattern. I am still pretty new at knitting and so still not the greatest at reading patterns. Is the Central Decrease supposed to happen on both sides of the center stitch?

Thank you for the help.”

      Regarding the central decrease, you’ll take a stitch from both sides of the centre stitch- it’s explained in the note at the begining of the pattern –

      “You will be marking the centre st (CS) with stitch markers at either side and using this as the point where you will decrease on every RS row. Because it is a central decrease, meaning that one stitch on either side of the CS will be decreased, you will need to remove the markers before completing the decrease. When you have done a few rows of the pattern, a “seam” will appear at the centre of the shawl where the decrease happens. You may find that this seam is enough for you to identify where you need to decrease and that you don’t need the markers any more.”

      Does that make sense? If your stitch count is off, perhaps something went awry with your decrease on the first couple of rows? Also, take the time to double check that you are not missing any yarn overs or shaping in the instructions – it pays to just cast an eye over your stitches every row or so and make sure everything is looking good!

      Happy Knitting! Let us know if you have any further queries.
