Arsringar Shawl by Jonatan Tollow with Maxine



Jonatan's designs are a lot about symmetry and shape, and this is no exception. ’Årsringar’ is the Swedish word for annual growth rings and an amazing organic shape that gave inspiration to this design. It is a simple brioche and garter stitch shawl, where each section of brioche grows bigger with the increasing size of the shawl. The result gives a beautiful colorful shawl with a large wingspan, making it perfect to wrap around your neck.

 

Fingering version:

Yarn: 3 different skeins 365m/399 yards per 100g of fingering weight yarn.

Needles: 3.5 mm/US 4, 40-80 cm/16-32’’ long circular needles. Increase length of your circular needles when necessary due to number of stitches. Check your gauge and adjust needle size if necessary.

Gauge: 20 stitches x 24 rows for 10x10 cm / 4’’ in brioche stitch, 20 stitches x 48 rows for 10x10 cm / 4’’ in stockinette, blocked. Gauge is important for yardage as well as the finished size of the shawl.

Finished size: 250 cm/ 98,5’’ wingspan length, 55 cm/ 21,5’’ from cast on to bottom edge measured along the center (blocked).

Yardage: Approximately 1200 yards of fingering weight yarn.

DK version:

Yarn: You can use any DK weight yarn.  See yardage notes below

Needles: 4.5 mm/US 7, 40-80 cm/16-32’’ long circular needles. Switch to longer circular needles as your shawl grows, to accommodate the increasing stitch count. Check your gauge and adjust needle size if necessary.

Gauge: 18 stitches x 22 rows for 10x10 cm / 4’’ in brioche stitch, 18 stitches x 44 rows for 10x10 cm / 4’’ in stockinette, unblocked. After blocking the gauge should be 13 stitches x 17 rows for 10x10 cm / 4’’ in brioche stitch. Gauge is important for yardage as well as the finished size of the shawl.
