Sunlight is angling through long grass. Take a moment to rest in the landscape. This light is fleeting, but for a few moments it warms and lifts.

Fielden is a wide triangular shawl, with lace echoing tall grasses, and a softly textured body. A relaxing knit which produces a warm and generously large shawl. The Main Colour can be complimented by a speckled, variegated or solid Contrast Colour, allowing good opportunities to display a small quantity of treasured yarn.

Including fully charted as well as written instructions, Fielden has been professionally tech. edited and test knitted.
