Inspiration and Kits for Scout Shawl by Florence Spurling
What is this dreamy colourwork shawl that has captured everyones imaginations? Well it's the Scout Shawl by Florence Spurling.
This shawl is colourwork heaven! It has a vintage patchwork vibe about it, like an heirloom quilt handed down through the generations. Every inch of this design is covered in different motifs. Geometrics, zig-zags and flower forms are knit in a combination of Fair Isle and intarsia. Knitted sideways from tip to tip this long narrow shape is great for wrapping around your neck without too much bulk. A great sampler for having fun with colours. It is knit in five different colours; a light neutral paired with two sets of lighter and darker contrasting colours. If you are having trouble picking your colours then we have some kit ideas for you.
