Finchley Road Shawl


add to cart

When I studied abroad in London years ago, my dorm room window overlooked Finchley Road. It’s by no means the most famous or the most historic street in London, but I walked down it everyday to catch a bus or get to the tube station or to go to the pub with my friends, and I still associate it with a sense of adventure and excitement. My time in London set the stage for later travels and my roommate from that semester is still one of my best friends. A few months there grew into much larger part of my life.

Like my time in London, the Finchley Road Shawl starts small, then branches out wider and wider. Since it is worked to size, gauge is not vital and virtually any cozy yarn that shows off cables well would work.

The pattern is both written and charted, and of course I’m always available for support if you have questions about it.

Finished Size: 62″ (157.5 cm) long x 22″ (56 cm) deep.
Gauge: 26 sts x 28 rows = 4” (10 cm).
Yarn: Valley Yarns Sheffield (70% Merino/15% Silk/15% Angora); 50 gr/120 yds. 8 balls.
Needles: US #7 (4.5mm) or size needed to achieve gauge; US #6 (4mm) needles.
Notions: 4 st markers, cable needle, tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

    I absolutely love the cables in this shawl. I can just imagine it now in a nice alpaca – yummy!
