(6) Name: 'Knitting : Bluebells

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • crossed stitches (instructions given)
  • short rows (no wraps)
  • elongated stitch (instructions & video)

Pattern Description:

IMPORTANT: There are changes to VAT legislation for digital sales in the EU as of 1/1/2015 which means VAT at the rate applicable to the country of purchase has to be added to the price. As Craftsy is unable to deal with this & as a micro business I am unable to either, my patterns will be removed from sale on December 31st. Sorry to disappoint, but as a micro business, there is no other way unfortunately. My patterns will still be available on Ravelry, Loveknitting & Patternfish.
If Craftsy is able to collect & pay the VAT during 2015, then I'll re-establish my store.

Inspired by the intense carpets of blue in the woods and swathing the roadsides in wales during late spring, Bluebells is a shawlette with a border of flower bells.

Worked from the bottom up starting with a textured border, followed with short rows to form the shaping, it would be suitable for the adventurous beginner or the intermediate knitter wanting an easy but interesting knit. It's a perfect size for between season wear, when a little extra warmth is still needed.

The detailed instructions are fully written as well as charted throughout.
There is a video link to show how to work an elongated stitch in the pattern.

The pattern has been fully tech edited and tested.

There is pattern support on my Ravelry group here: as well as by email at

NB: New regs in the EU (as of 13 june '14) mean that patterns aren't refundable after download. HOWEVER if you're unhappy in any way with your pattern I can still offer a refund / replacement. My T&Cs are here:

About the designer

I live in rural mid Wales in a small house, well insulated with yarn. When not compulsively knitting shawls, I can be found pottering in my garden and finding inspiration from the welsh ...
