Shawlette knitting pattern


Imagine yourself in the Scottish Highlands or in wild primeval woods. 

Eileen drapes prettily over a dark coat. Also very comfortable as an alternative to a warm pullover, when a thick jumper or vest is too warm inside.

Eileen is a separate collar with a varied cable pattern. 



This isn't just a project with a bite. This project bites back.

Are you confident in your cable knitting? Are you familiar with knitting short rows? And mostly: are you comfortable with reading knitting patterns?

If yes, Eileen is one for you!


Required materials:



Eileen WIPOne size fits (almost) all. Eileen is a shawlette or shoulder warmer, knitted vertically. You can easily make it smaller or bigger, just leave out or add pattern repeats.

Do bear in mind that you will need more yarn if you're knitting a bigger version.



Eileen is designed and knitted by the creative caterpillar, needle magician and allround inspirator Aryadne's Thread. (She's a bit Instagram shy still...)


Choice: to i-cord or not to i-cord

Aryadne chose to i-cord. She's finished the collar with an i-cord cast on, edge and cast off. 

In the pattern, the i-cord cast on and cast off is not included. That would make the pattern needlessly complicated, in the schematics and visually. The i-cord on the edges has been included. 

So if you want to make the collar without i-cord, or if you prefer to add it later (in a different colour), then you should cast on 3 stitches less.


Short Rows

The pattern makes use of short rows. Just as with sock knitting, it's best to knit short rows in such a way that no holes appear. 

Aryadne doesn't really like the yarn-around-a-stitch methode. She prefers the Japanese short row. But of course, each to their own, there is no absolute right way of doing things! 

Another tip from Aryadne: "During this project, I fell in love with those little sliding hairpins, as stitch markers. That works quickly and easily!" So there ;)



TIP: Save the images and print them, so you can mark your rows. 

The pattern consists of 4 parts. Start at the beginning ;) Decide whether or not you want to use the i-cord method. 

Once you have knitted part 1, move on to the 13th row of part 2 and continue. After that, repeat from the 1st row of the repeating pattern. Repeat it 7 times in total (including the beginning, the combination of part 1 and part 2). 

Then move on to part 3 and cast off, with the i-cord method or a method of your choice. 

After that you knit the neck part separately. Repeat that pattern until it is as long as the short side of the shoulder part. brei je de opstaande hals rand/boord. 

Sew, darn or crochet the neck and shoulders together. Attach some clips or buttons to fasten the collar when wearing it.
