Did anyone else notice baby Sybil's shawl on last Sunday's episode of Downton Abbey? It was beautiful, and I'd love to have the pattern!
Yes! I love that baby shawl. I tried looking on Ravelry under "Christening" , Downton Abbey Shawl, and Sybil's shawl hoping that someone had posted this pattern on line but to no avail. I'll keep looking to see if I can find something on this beautiful shawl.
I found this beautiful collection of baby shawls on line from Shepherd patterns. Not quite baby Sybil's shawl but these are beautiful jus the same.
I found this gorgeous free pattern from Patons:
Absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much for the links.
I am also looking for the pattern. I knitted this shawl myself 20 years ago but they shawl has a rip and I need the pattern to repair it. I know the pattern was printed in the Woman's Weekly about 22 years ago. The pattern and wool could also be bought in kit form from a company in Northern Scotland.
The shawl is knitted from the outside in and it took me about 6 months to knit it.
It would be great if you could give me any information.
Be careful if you plan to make the Cloud Drift Baby Shawl from Patons. The written instructions are at variance with the charts. Alternate rows should be purled not knitted. I worked 40 frustrating rows thinking something was wrong before looking at the charts are recognizing the error.
Thanks so much for pointing out the error. Beautiful shawl. I hope it's now going along well.
I have found the pattern, this have a number of different patterns in the same cobweb thread
How beautiful! I am totally besotted with Downton Abby and this shawl/blanket is as beautiful as the show. So sorry the shop is in the UK and me in the US. Would love to take a crack at it!
So looking forward to the new season. I've been living with the car crash all summer! What a shocking season closure.
did not see downtown abbey shawl but from your description I would look on www.jamiesonsofshetland.co.uk. It is called a wedding ring shawl. I found the pattern in the 100 year edition of the womans weekly and sent to scotland for the wool. I have now made two of the shawls and they are beautiful although the wool is not as soft as regular baby yarns. Good luck with your search.
