Om Shawl [New Pattern]

February 12, 2017


I'm happy and excited to be adding a new designer to the store this week! Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits is has been designing unique and fabulous knits since 2014. Andrea describes her style as fun and modern, she loves learning new knitting techniques and aims to pass those on to other knitters through her patterns.


Om Shawl by Andrea Mowry


The first of Andrea's knitting patterns I want to share with you is the Om Shawl. This is a cosy stole that can be worn in a multitude of different ways to suit what you are wearing or doing. Drape it around your back and over your arms, button up the top sides and pull it over your head like a poncho, button half of the side buttons and wrap it twice around your neck like a cowl letting the corners drape down like a triangle shawl. Lay it over your lap for some extra warmth on a chilly morning as you sip tea. Button all of the side buttons and use it as a nursing cowl. The options are endless!


Om Shawl


There's lots of texture going on in this project, and it incorporates colour too so in my book that's everything I want from a knitting project! 

Andrea's patterns are well written with both written instructions for the colourwork sections and charts. You might wish to upsize your knitting needle for the colourwork sections to ensure your gauge isn't too tight.


Andri's Om Shawl knit in Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok
 Andri's Om Shawl knit in Woolstok - colours (MC) Storm Cloud, (CC1) Golden Meadow, (CC2) Grey Harbor and (CC3) Cast Iron


Chose a worsted weight yarn, the original sample was knit in O-wool Classic Worsted. I love Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok for knitting the Om Shawl; you've a good range of colours to chose from, there are 21 colours together! Woolstok so comes in five neutral shades in 150g skeins which would be ideal to use as your primary colour.

Lots of knitters have already knit their Om Shawls in Woolstok including Andri (Andriknitsalot on Ravelry) who has kindly allowed us to share her finished project. Andri used Woolstok in Storm Cloud, Golden Meadow, Grey Harbor and Cast Iron.
