Mara Shawl Kit in Madtosh Farm Twist
The Mara Shawl is a favourite pattern for beginner shawl knitters who want to explore techniques beyond basic knit and purl. Worked in 3 skeins of gorgeous Madelinetosh Farm Twist, you'll love to cuddle up in this soft, squishy shawl. Pattern included.
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. We have put together some kits for this fabulous shawl in super squishy Madelinetosh Farm Twist. You could also use Tosh DK.
- Three skeins of Farm Twist which is enough for a full-sized shawl (finished width 120cm).
- Mara Shawl Pattern

About Madelinetosh Farm Twist
Madelinetosh Farm Twist DK is made up of two strands (plys) of our favourite Tosh Merino Light twisted together to form a heavy 8ply / DK - light worsted weight yarn. Farm Twist DK has the same amazing sheen and colour intensity as Tosh Merino Light with a slightly more rustic appearance (it's still super soft and squish though!). It works up beautifully into a luxurious fabric making it the perfect option for scarves, shawls and garments.
Each incredibly soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots and there is the usual absolutely gorgeous range of MadTosh colours!
- 8ply / DK to light 10ply / worsted weight yarn
- 100% superwash merino wool
- 205m / 225yd per 100g skein
- Gauge knit: 20-22sts per 10cm on 4mm-4.5mm needles
- Gauge crochet: 12-17sts per 10 cm with a 4.5mm-5.5mm hook
- Care: Machine wash cold on gentle cycle, air dry flat
Dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in South Africa.
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.
