Our First Printed Pattern!
This delicate shawl has a triangular, wingspan shape. Worked from the top down, and from the centre out wards the work moves quickly, which is very satisfying.
Initially you will use a garter tab cast on, you will then increase on every right side row at the centre spine and border edges.

The central lace work is inspired by the shape of the ammonite fossils found on our local coastline. The discovery of these beautiful fossils is made possible by the power of the waves that pummel our shores, this power and movement inspires the lace detail on the border of the shawl.
The yarn suggested has been hand dyed by myself. The techniques I use give a tonal effect which gives a subtle variation to the hues of the main colour. The blend of Merino and nylon works well to give a lovely drape, whilst maintaining a good durability. I particularly like how the turquoise reflects the movement seen in the waters at Ogmore by Sea on a bright, crisp, sunny, Spring afternoon. The pattern also works well with a variegated yarn, such as my ‘Pollack’ colourways.
