Fallen Leaves


The stunningly beautiful Fallen Leaves pattern is now a part of the p/hop collection, and we couldn’t be more excited! This pattern was designed and generously donated by Sue Lazenby.

“A sideways knit, triangular shawl or scarf in two depths, worked in one piece with an i-cord edging. The leaf patterned lace border is easy, with purling on WS rows. The ridged pattern for the main part of the shawl creates a textured contrast to the flowing lines of the border. It is easily customisable for size and available yarn amounts and thickness, as approximately half the yarn is used before starting decreases. An interesting, but not difficult knit for the intermediate knitter. This makes it a versatile shawl that could also be knitted in a heavier weight yarn for a cosy winter wrap or even lace weight for summer.”

What you need to get started:

  • Sports weight yarn,  280 yd / 256 m per 100g. Preferably a yarn with some silk content for a good drape.
  • Approximately 550 yd / 503 m (narrow shawl), 740 yd /  677 m (deeper shawl)
  • Other thickness yarns, from DK or thicker could also be used. Ravelry knitters have also made beautiful lace and aran weight versions. Yarn quantities can also be varied to give different sizes.
  • US # 8 / 5.0 mm 40” / 100 cm circular needle or size to achieve desired gauge. Needle size is a recommendation only.
  • 2 stitch markers
  • Blocking wires & pins
