Pentland Hills

Inspired by the rolling green hills south west of Edinburgh, this relaxing knit is the perfect showcase for this glorious yarn.

Wrap yourself in the exquisite, luxurious Splendor that is allowed to shine in all its glory, through the simplicity of this gorgeous shawl.

This shawl is easy to knit and perfectly suited to a beginner or a more experienced knitter looking for a relaxing project.

A wide crescent shape of soothing garter stitch is balanced by a beautiful but easy to knit lace border and a striking looped picot bind off. The shawl is fully reversible, as the lace has no right or wrong side.

Pattern notes

This graceful, crescent shaped shawl is constructed with two increases on each row. The lace border is reversible, meaning the shawl looks beautiful on both sides.

This pattern was originally exclusive to the Neighbourhood Sheep Society yarn club members but has now been re-released in readily available yarn.
