Lady of the canyon shawl
“Trina takes her paints and threads and weaves a pattern all her own,” Joni Mitchell sings in her ‘Ladies of the Canyon’.
In this, the second shawl in the Celtic Shawl Series, those words describe perfectly a shawl which combines luscious threads with unique Aran Lace stitch patterns.
Imagine this all-season shawl at a spring wedding, on a summer evening beach stroll, wrapped around you on an autumn walk through the woodlands or used as an over-sized scarf on the coldest of winter days. Luxury will envelope you.
Stitch Patterns are both charted and written out.
The pattern is 31 pages and includes detailed construction notes and diagrams as well as links to useful techniques such as cabling without a cable needle.
This shawl begins at the centre of the shawl and is knit flat circularly, from the centre out; two sides of the central square are then extended and are knit flat; edgings are knit on as the shawl is worked. There is no seaming or picking up stitches.
