This is one of my favorite shawls. I found my pattern in a magazine in the early 80’s and made my ‘first Spiral Shawl.
Each time I wear it it draws a lot of attention and many ask me where they can get the pattern.
It has a net border of simple chain stitch loops that are topped off with a luxurious deep fringe. I absolutely adore fringe but for those who don’t, almost any border could be adapted.
When I wash a shawl with fringe, instead of putting it in the dryer, I hang it over the shower curtain rod to dry. Then while it is still damp, I use an ordinary hair pic to comb out the fringe.
Unfortunately this is NOT my pattern so the pattern is not on this blog. However I will be creating my own version of a spiral shawl which will be posted here in the near future.
The magazine where I found my pattern must be out of print by now and although many have asked me for the pattern I cannot share my copy because of the copyright laws.
I have no idea how the current owner of the pattern acquired permission to post it but I decided to post her link for those who wish to make this shawl.
As of this writing her pattern is being offered for free. The source for this pattern is here:
