Pattern Description:

This highly textured shawl was inspired by the many lichens and mosses that grow in Wales. Lichen stitch is paired with moss stitch bands, which are accentuated by reverse stocking stitch. These contrast with the wide central garter stitch panel. This makes an interesting, yet easy knit for the advanced beginner.

A versatile shawl in 2 sizes, that can be worked in a variety of yarns from fingering through to worsted weight. It is best worked in a solid yarn to show the textured patterns well.

The detailed instructions are fully written as well as charted throughout.

The pattern has been fully tech edited and tested.

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 countryside.
I've recently begun designing my own patterns and especially love working with texture and colours, although I love lace designs too. I try to create patterns that are easy to use and aimed at the ...
