Description

Camilla is a heart shaped shawl that can be knit and accessorized in many ways.   The shawl begins at the back of the neck, with a double increase on each end and a single increase on either side of the center stitch (6 sts increased every other row) to create a flattering shape.  

Camilla is knit using three different colors, so that you may create as many shawl color combinations as you wish to dramatically complement your outfits or the shawl may be knit in a single color for a more subtle look.  

This design can be fully blocked to create a larger, full body shawl or worn unblocked for a more informal, ruffly shawlette/scarf.

Materials Needed:

- 771 yards of fingering/sock weight merino wool/cashmere blend yarn (215 yds of the main color, 385 yds of color 2 and 171 yards of color 3). I used the amazing Plucky Knitter Primo yarn.

- Size US 5 (32-40") circular needle

- tapestry needle, small stitch markers, scissors, measuring tape, row counter and scrap yarn in a contrasting color

Finished Size: (unblocked) 21.5" tall x 92" wide (along bottom edge)

Techniques Used: lace (both simple and intermediate), increasing, blocking (with pins or wires)

This pattern features both easy to read charts and written instructions. It's wonderfully fun and addictive to knit. The Camilla shawl can be worn easily everyday or on special occasions. I highly recommend knitting a few to go with different outfits :) A great use of leftover or extra sock yarn!

(NOTE: This pattern was inspired by my favorite actress, Miranda Hart, in her portrayal of “Chummy/Camilla” in the series, Call the Midwife. Her character is so charming, funny, deeply caring, uncharacteristically lovely, practical and unconventional. I hope this shawl, with it’s formal and informal options, will shine just like her character does on the show.)

A nice little book with beautiful little projects, like the famous Amanda Hat. I also like the other hats and the two shawls (soleil and immortel). The instructions and the charts seem to be very clear. Can´t wait to knit the Amanda hat first!
I received the two books very nicely wrapped as a gift and with a friendly dedication from Gina. This was her first package to Germany and all went fine.
Thank you, Gina!

A very nice and carefully made book with beautiful projects! I specially like the shawl on the cover, the Violet´s Garden Socks, the Queen`s Mirror Shawl (with another colour) and the Hunter Scarf of Noro Yarn! And what I really like is that the charts are very confortable for the eyes to read, because they are big and clear.
Thank you Gina, for this inspiring book. I am looking forward of many hours of happy knitting.
