How it works

  • This pattern was designed by a Craftsy independent design partner!
  • You'll purchase through PayPal and all profits go to the designer.
  • After purchase find your pattern in your pattern library.


Choosing Yarn This design will work best with a solid to lightly variegated yarn. Heavily variegated and hand painted yarns will blur the lace detail. Construction Irish Cream is worked from the top down (rows get longer as you go). All the patterning is done on the right side. Wrong side rows are your "rest" rows and are purled straight across. Three lace patterns flow gracefully into one another. The last lace pattern (section three) can easily be extended for a larger shawl. Conclusion When you're done knitting your Irish Cream shawl relax with the drink it was named for! Irish Cream is one of the ingredients in a frozen mudslide milkshake. The Recipe can be found on the last page of the pattern. Shawl pin shown is from CacklinHenDesigns on Etsy.
