Basic Skills Necessary:

  • lace knitting
  • patterning on WS rows as well as RS

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. If nothing changes with the way Craftsy sells patterns by then, I'm sorry to say that I'll be withdrawing my patterns from sale at the end of 2014. Sorry to disappoint, but as a micro business, there is no other way unfortunately. My patterns will still be available on Ravelry, Loveknitting & Patternfish.

A sideways knit, triangular scarf or shawl in two depths worked in one piece with an i-cord edging (instructions given). The leaf patterned lace border is easy, with purling on WS rows. The ridged pattern for the main part of the shawl creates a textured contrast to the flowing lines of the border.

It is easily customisable for size and available yarn amounts and thickness as approximately half the yarn is used before starting decreases. An interesting, but not difficult knit for the intermediate knitter, which makes a versatile scarf / shawl either in sports weight or in a heavier weight yarn for a cosy winter wrap.

Detailed instructions, covering 8 pages, are fully written as well as charted throughout.

The pattern has been fully tech edited and tested.

There is an open ended KAL in my Ravelry group here: as well as pattern support either in my group or 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 ...
