Waterloo Sunset Shawl
“As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset I am in paradise” The Kinks
Waterloo Bridge is one of London’s most iconic landmarks. It inspired The Kinks’ famous song, Waterloo Sunset, and holds a special place in every Londoner’s heart. This beautifully simple shawl features a stranded motif inspired by the gentle curves of Waterloo Bridge.
The modern curved boomerang shape is so easy to wear. Drape the widest part in front for a bandana effect, or hang it behind to get more coverage on your back. It also works well as a cosy accessory under a winter coat.
The shawl is written for two colours of fingering weight yarn, but is also a great pattern for mini skeins or for stashbusting. Select one main colour and then work each motif strip in a different contrast colour.
Fingering/4 ply yarn as follows: 437 yards/400m of the main colour; 66 yards/60m of the contrast colour.
The shawl also works well at a looser or tighter gauge.
