OD – Ovale Decke Shawl

Just published another Herbert Niebling adaptation – Ovale Decke Shawl! This is my fifth Niebling adaptation and one I modified the most (including adding an interesting edge to the design) yet retaining the integrity of a Niebling.

OD – Ovale Decke Shawl is a large deep-crescent shaped shawl based on a lesser-known Herbert Niebling pattern of the same name, Oval Doily in English. OD is worked from the top down with increases throughout the body. The original pattern is in an oval shape. I modified it into a softer deep-crescent shape.

OD uses approximately 437-475 yards / 400-435 meters of fingering-weight yarns for the regular version and 920-1300 yards/840-1200 meters of lace-weight yarns for the large version, as well as anything in between. The yardage is just a guide for OD is a very adaptable pattern. Knitters may elect to omit some sections thus allowing OD to be knitted in one 100-g skein (fingering or lace weight). It may also be knitted using multiple colors, a set of coordinated colors, as well as leftover yarns.
