This shawl was an absolute delight to design and knit! I took the yarns and needles on holiday in Scotland in August and loved every minute of relaxing and creating it - and yes, even knitting as I walked up and down hills!
It‘s a bit of a magical project because it takes good, honest, hardworking Shetland wool and combines it with extravagant brushed Mohair and silk to make a luxurious, soft and snuggly project without the massive price tag!
This shawl is BIG and is the ultimate “hug” - perfect for the cold snap we are apparently expecting!
This special colour-way was designed for my dear friend Edwina and was inspired by photographs of Gwithian beach from her holiday in Cornwall.
The kit contains:
9 x 25g balls of Jamieson and Smith 2 ply jumperweight wool in a gently graded colour palette
2 x 50g skeins of natural cream brushed mohair and silk laceweight
