This shawl will showcase hand spun yarn. It has been designed to be knit with the typical thick-and-thin yarn which most new spinners produce with their first efforts. This design works well with hand-dyed, variegated yarns, or with a combination of yarn odds and ends. Because of this it is also great for some stash busting.
The shawl consists of a stockinette body and a border based on the Old Shale lace pattern. Charts and full written instructions are given.

Having a background in Industrial Design Engineering, you can say that I always had a knack for design. When I taught myself to knit and discovered the possibilities of sticks & twine, the gates for ideas to translate into knitted fabric were opened.
