Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on
  • knit purl
  • slipped stitches

Pattern Description:

Ilkley is a triangular shawl, knit from the bottom up - you start with lots of stitches but start decreasing right away! No casting off hundreds of stitches. Shown in two sizes, a two-colour smaller scarf and a five-colour ombre version in a larger shawl size. The non-lacy stitch pattern is cushy yet airy, and easy to work! Perfect for small amounts of sock yarns or handspuns.
