Joan Shawl Kits by Florence Spurling (Pre-Order)


Brand Kokon

We have left in stock!

A creative collaboration with Kokon Yarn, Joan is inspired by a visit to the Joan of Arc Museum in Rouen, France. It uses six tones of fingering weight yarn and numerous slip-stitch patterns to create an engaging colour- and pattern- filled accessory. The hybrid shawl / scarf shape is constructed in four parts: a central piece, the left and right tips, and a border, to reflect the multidirectional lines and structures within armour.

Construction Notes
• Shawl is worked in 4 pieces: the Central Piece, Right and Left Tips and a Border.
• After completing the Central piece, the side lengths are picked up one at a time and worked outward from the middle with decreases made along one edge to create a shaped tip. Once the Left Tip is completed, stitches are picked up along the long angled edge and the Border is knitted on.
