Bamburgh Shawl

Bamburgh Shawl was designed by Maddie Harvey.

Exploring the contrast between two of our gorgeously different Whistlebare yarns – Yeavering Bell and Cheviot Marsh, the Bamburgh Shawl features garter-stitch stripes, slipped stitches and simple cables to create a striking geometric pattern.
Named after the wonderful Bamburgh Castle, the shawl looks glorious knitted in regal colours and the tessellating pattern is reminiscent of the cobbled and tiled floors found in this fairy-tale castle on the Northumberland coast.


One size  205 cm / 80.75” long x 42 cm / 16.5” deep


4mm / 6 US circular needle, 80cm (32”) long (straight needles could also be used, but a circular needle is needed to work the edging)
Cable needle (optional), two stitch markers, plus four lockable markers (two in a different colour), tapestry needle & blocking pins (wires optional)

Choose one colour of Yeavering Bell from the colours seen at the bottom of the page, and one colour of Cheviot Marsh from the photos in the gallery.
