Baymen Shawl Knitting Pattern

Baymen Shawl Knitting Pattern

Named for the wood cutters who originally harvested Logwood in Belize, the Baymen Shawl is perfect for those busy yarns that we all love but don't know how to use. It begins in one corner & uses increases placed along the center of the shawl to create waves of mesh and garter-stitch reminiscent of the rivers where Logwood trees prefer to grow. The shawl is edged with a bobble-bind-off to give it a fun finish & add a bit of texture without going overboard. Instructions are included for making the shawl with as much or as little yarn as you have available so feel free to pick a yarn that you love and cast on!


(If you'd like to read up a bit on the history of Logwood check out this article.)


All stitch patterns are both written-out and charted.
