This shawl is a great project for anybody: not too difficult for a beginner but interesting enough for advanced knitters too.
The shawl features both stripes and lace: this gives endless opportunities for variations and I can’t wait to see what colour combinations people will choose. The mixture of stripes and lace also means that this is a really adaptable pattern, you can create a more elegant shawl or pick strong, contrasting colours for a more casual look.
The pattern includes both written instructions and charts.

Achat is the first pattern in the Minerals collection
