The Mara Shawl is one of our favourite patterns for beginner shawl knitters who know how to knit and purl but want to explore further techniques, and it's also fantastic for more experienced knitters who want a quick relaxing knit. Incorporating simple increases and decreases for shaping, plus garter stitch and ribbing for different textures, the shawl is cast on with 5 stitches and it grows from there into a simple garter-stitch triangle shape, worked from the top down and trimmed with a pleated border.

This flexible pattern can be worked larger for a full-sized shawl or smaller for a petite shawlette. Knit in DK weight yarn, this soft, squishy shawl is the perfect companion on a cool spring evening or layered under a winter coat for fall. The pattern was designed for Tosh DK so we have put together some kits for this fabulous shawl.

  • Three skeins of Tosh DK which is enough for a full-sized shawl (finished width 120cm).

Please note: Dyed by hand in small batches, Madelinetosh yarns do not come in dye lots. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in colouring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch. We suggest using two skeins and alternating rows to ensure there is no obvious line when you change skeins.
