Northumberland is a triangular top-down shawl knit in either DK or fingering-weight yarn - instructions for both weights are included. Short strands float in a slip stitch lace pattern emphasising the beautiful variegation of hand-dyed yarns and little knots add textural interest to more subdued tonal yarns. Pattern is both written and charted.

Huge thanks to my wondrous technical editor, Deborah Lapp.
