As both of my Ama Shawl samples have met with disaster, it seems a bit odd that it’s number 2 in my Top 10 Countdown and that I find myself needing to knit another one. My original pink/grey sample (pictured) has been nibbled by (now dealt with) moths and my blue/grey sample has fallen foul of being put away damp on top of something red … you can guess how that turned out!


So it’s just as well that I finally got round to creating a tutorial for the Ama Shawl’s i-cord tab cast-on, which you can find on my blog or by clicking here. Ama is a top-down shawl that starts as a semi-circle shape with some simple short rows added to create a wider, more wearable style of shawl. Like my Ama Sweater pattern, it features the ‘string of pearls” stitch and is a great option for variegated yarns (this sample was knitted in yarn from The Wool Kitchen).

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