Product details

Cape Breton is home to Beinn Bhreagh, the former estate of Alexander Graham Bell. Here he worked on many of his inventions including the Silver Dart. The Silver Dart took wing from the icy surface of Baddeck Bay in the winter of 1909 making it the first controlled powered airplane flight in Canada and the British Empire.

This shawl is knit flat, from side to side, on a circular needle. The windmill-lace pattern is bordered by a yarn-over cabled edge (bottom edge of shawl) while the upper-central portion of the shawl is worked in Garter stitch. A narrow yarn-over cable separates the Garter stitch section from the lace pattern. A knit-in mock I-Cord provides a lovely finish for the top edge of the shawl.

Stitch counts are included for all increase and decrease rows; increase and decrease stitches are bolded for easy identification.

The shawl may be made wider by extending the centre section. Each additional 4” / 10cm of width will require an additional 51yds / 47m of yarn.
