Montville by Addydae Designs | Montville was intended showcase yarns with long colour changes. The asymmetrical shape and simple lace edge allow your feature yarn to take centre stage. Montville is worked sideways with the edging added afterward and can be made in multiple yarn weights according to your preference.
Gauge: For this design, gauge is not critical. Aim for a soft fluid fabric suited to the yarn you have chosen. You don't want your shawl to be stiff and rigid, or loose and shapeless. I would suggest a hook one size bigger than the size recommended for the yarn weight being used. Work a couple of pattern repeats and be the judge. If it's too stiff, choose a larger hook. If the fabric is too loose, go down a hook size. As a guide, the garment pictured on Page one has a gauge of 18 tr to 4"" using 100% wool fingering weight yarn and a 4.5mm hook after being blocked quite rigorously.
Finished Measurements: Approximately 61 inches/156 cm wide (around curve) X 15.5 inches/40cm deep after blocking. Of course, this size is a suggestion only. You can make yours as wide as you wish. "
Materials Used: Whatever you like! This design can be worked up using just about any fibre and yarn weight. Cotton, silk, alpaca and bamboo blends would be the most ideal as they are more likely to drape gently.
Hook Size: 4.5mm (G+) suggested if using fingering weight yarn
