Portobello road shawl

Some of my followers have asked me to do a non triangle shawl pattern. Well, here is my first one. This is already my favorite for the autumn.

Många har efterfrågat trevliga mönster på raka sjalar istället för de annars så populära trekantiga sjalarna. Jag hakade på idén och måste säga att denna redan är en höstfavorit.

The inspiration for this shawl came to me during my visit to London this summer. A walk along Portobello road with the beautiful coulorful houses side by side. So alike, but so different.

Inspirationen till denna sjal kom under min semestervistelse i London. En promenad längs Portobello road med de vackra olikfärgade husen sida vid sida, som olikfärgade block. Så lika, men ändå så olika.

In the first picture I used the supersoft bambino in 4 different colours. I changed colour in every fpdc-row. In the other pictures I used Scheepjes whirl, the delicious gradient yarn. I used one skein whirl and I have to get back to you about the amount of yarn used for the bambino shawl. 

Sjalen på den första bilden är virkad i vikings supermjuka bambino, randat i 4 olika färger. Färgbytet har jag gjort på varje rel st-varv, den andra varianten är virkad i Scheepjes whirl, det underbara garnet med sina unika färgskiftningar. Jag har använt ett helt nystan whirl och virknål 3,5mm. Samma virknål till bambino, återkommer med exakt garnåtgång till den.

The size of the shawl is 28,5 cm wide and 171 cm long. If you wish to make it wider, add a number of ch divisible with 6 to the starting chains. (6, 12, 18, 24 and so on…) 6 extra ch will make it approximately 2,5 cm wider. Just remember that you will need to buy more yarn.

Sjalen blir ca 28,5 cm bred och 171 cm lång i whirl, någon knapp cm bredare i bambino. Om du önskar att göra sjalen bredare, lägg till ett antal maskor delbart med 6 till grunduppläggningen (6, 12, 18, 24 och så vidare…). Kom ihåg bara att garnåtgången kommer att ändras.

  1. Hi,
    Lovely pattern and I have just the yarn to make it for a friend. I do want to make it wider though. Can you help me with the pattern repeat stitches. What is the calculation of starting stitches if I want to make it wider?
    Thank you


  2. När det står 1 lm, 1 cm osv från början av ett varv, räknas luftmaskan som den första fm eller vänder man bara med den??
    Tack för fint mönster!!


    1. Hi, no just from one end, the end which you are going to start with. The reason is that you will make the lace in the ends of the shawl afterwards. It looks better if the lace is in the same colour.


  3. Hi – can’t wait to begin making this shawl for my sister in law. I am using a whirl and had a question. How many repeats of the pattern did you do for your shawl and what rows are part of the repeat. Thanks so much for your time and assistance in answering my question and many thanks for such a beautiful pattern.


      1. Sorry I accidently published my answer before I was ready. All the information you are asking for is written in the pattern, a little bit down at the end, before the edging. If you read it you will se what rows to repeat and how many times. I hope you would like to show me some pictures when you are ready.


      2. My ridges from the fpdc end up being on the right side & then on the wrongside. Should the ridge be on both sides?


  4. I have a question about 23. If I am reading the pattern correctly, I am confused about the stitches. There are 69 stitches in the previous row. In row 23, there are 2 stitched in the beginning of the row and two at the end of the row. In between, there are multiple repeats of stitches taking up three stitches of the previous row (stitches in same stitch plus skipping 2). 69 minus 2 at front and minus two at end = 65. 65 is not divisible by 3 so do we just skip one stitch at the end or am I missing something? Thank you in advance.


    1. Hi, you start row 23 with a ch 1 (a turning stitch which does not count as a stitch) , 1 sc in the first stitch, after the first sc the pattern starts, which is divisible with 6, end with 2 stitches, there are 69 stitches minus 1 in the beginning and 2 in the end =66.


  5. Hello, I’m trying to make your beautiful pattern. For Row 6 the first stitches are:
    Ch3, 1dc, ch 2* then the repeat starts. Where do I place the dc please? Cheers, Julie


  6. This is beautiful and I’ll try making mine into an afghan throw for my granddaughter. My question is are you using U.S. English. Terminology or EU?


  7. I have made your lovely scarf a while ago and given it away. Now doing it again and I have one query.
    Having done the first run to row 36, you say crochet the rows 5-36 6 times. Is that 6 more times = 7 or 6 in total, including the first run?
    Many thanks
