Stoer Shawl

Lace, stripes, garter stitch and short rows add up to the very best of all worlds in this generously sized three- colour wrap with plenty of knitterly interest. Despite the modular effect, it’s worked strip by strip with minimal ends to weave in.

Worked at a loose gauge in Ripples Crafts’ lofty British breed blend Cochrane, Stoer makes for a cozy and warm but light shawl that’s ideal for snuggling in on the windiest winter days. Then again, if your climate is milder, you could work fewer crescents per strip for a smaller shawl.


One size:

Wingspan: 264 cm / 104 in
Depth: 45 cm / 17.75 in


The pattern requires three colours of sport weight yarn for the main colour. I recommend using a lofty woollen spun yarn that will give body and drape at the stated gauge.

Required Yardage: MC: 265 m / 290 yds CC1: 280 m / 306 yds CC2: 350 m / 383 yds

Sample is made using:

Ripplescrafts Cochrane, 50% Bowmont, 50% Bluefaced Leicester, 350 m / 383 yds per 100g skein.

MC: Winter Midnight, 1 skein.
CC1: Assynt Peat, 1 skein
CC2: Oh! Fresh Coconut, 1 skein


14 sts and 26 rows over 10 cm / 4 in, in garter stitch after blocking. Gauge is not critical but will affect the finished dimensions and the amount of yarn used.


5 mm circular needles
