Bundle up in a roomy shawl that is also a playground of cables. Various types and sizes of cables snake across the surface from one end to the other. The work is done following a series of six charts. Finished measurements are 20" x 79.5". Maremma can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this Norah Gaughan design a skill level rating of 3 out of 5 (intermediate).
Maremma is knit in Quarry, Brooklyn Tweed's Targhee-Columbia wool. This is a chunky weight yarn that is softly spun to mimic the look of unspun yarn but with more strength. It knits into a lofty and light but very warm and slightly fuzzy fabric. In Maremma, it is knit at 3.25 stitches per inch in stockinette after blocking.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 10.5 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- cable needle
- T-pins and blocking wires (optional)
- tapestry needle
Maremma is shown in Quarry color 245 Gypsum. If you would like your stole to be in this color, simply order above. If you would like to pick your own color, see our Quarry page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your color choice in the box above.
