The Doodler was Stephen West's Mystery Knit-along in the Autumn of 2015. As with many of his shawl patterns, when using 4-ply yarn, the shawl ends up very large. Scaling down the project by using a slightly finer yarn (3-ply) and using needles that are 1 or 2 sizes smaller (depending on your gauge) yields a shawl that is still ample in size but won't drown you.
The wingspan when knitting this pattern one needle size smaller and using Soliloquy Sock lace is 140 cm (55 in). Different suggested colour options will pop up here as they become available.
Suggested needle size:
The Doodler calls for a 3.5 mm. I recommend a 3.25 mm needle in combination with one of these Soliloquy kits.
- 3 different colours (2 x 100 gr, 1 x 50 gr)
This kit contains:
- 2 x 100 gr of Soliloquy Sock Lace (in AlpacaBoo: 80% Alpaca, 20% Bamboo)
- 1 x 50 gr of Soliloquy Sock Lace (in AlpacaBoo: 80% Alpaca, 20% Bamboo)
- pattern NOT included!
Please purchase the pattern on Ravelry or from the Westknits website.
You will not use all of the yarn in the kit and have plenty of each colour to use them however you like best, as recommended by Mr. West himself!
