Branwen (pronounced BRAN-oo-wen) means ‘White Raven’. She is one of the Celtic battle goddesses & I have taken inspiration from the shape of spear heads and axes, entwined Celtic patterns as well as the shape of raven’s wings. This is a sideways knit triangular shawl, the cabled panel along the lower edge complementing the diamond patterned lace. The size is adjustable & it is suitable for an intermediate knitter.
