With simplicity and warmth in mind, this shawl will add so much to your already fabulous wardrobe. Ballyholme is a cozy worsted triangular shawl that is knit top down with gradient eyelets that start from the top and gradually fade as you knit down the shawl ending with a border of garter stitch. Are triangular shawls new to you? Is lace something you’ve always wanted to try? Ballyholme is a great knit as an intro to both, and if you just need a break from all the large complicated projects in your life this will be perfect.

Pattern is fully charted with written instructions included and has been both tested and Tech Edited.

Both pattern and yarn are available as a kit at a discounted price from the lovely Toil and Trouble
