Mrs Watson

One night I watched an Episode of “Sherlock” – it was the one in which Mr Watson has a wife, Mrs Watson. She was wearing a dress with an all-over leaf pattern that served as an inspiration for this shawl. Its construction was, when I designed it in the beginning of 2015, completely new.

It was part of a collection for the yarn company Berroco who published it in June 2015. In the meantime, I had used this new construction for the Strickmich! Club pattern “Thousand Tulips” and “Match & Move”. I must say, I am a little bit proud of myself: This construction, that has inspired so many, was invented by me. Mrs Watson is knit in a super soft Alpaca yarn, and the pretty leaves are shaped by short rows – but don’t worry, you won’t have to pick up the wraps, so it’s a relaxing knit!

Find the recommended yarn “Amano Puna” and the pattern in Strickmich! Shop. It’s also available on Ravelry.
