This knitting pattern PDF is for the Fibrefest Scarf and Shawl.
The shawl was designed for the NSW Knitters’ Guild FibreFest Event held in Singleton NSW in October 2019.

The Fibrefest Shawl and Scarf are worked mostly in garter stitch interspersed with interesting eyelets and openings to create a semi-sculptural effect. Instructions are included for two-colour or five-colour options but you may use any number of colours. There are seven blocks of pattern along the length of the scarf or shawl, with the three blocks at each end mirrored.

The Fibrefest Scarf and Shawl require average to intermediate knitting skills.
