Available as a single pattern or as part of the Celtic Myth e-book collection.
Rhiannon is pronounced Hree-AN-on (the “RH” is rolled like in Spanish “roho” but has a great deal more of the H sound in it than just R). I was inspired by Celtic tracery, the grid work on gates & pattern of horse shoes. This is a top down triangular shawl in two sizes (the large with a lace border) which makes a cosy wrap in either fingering or heavy lace weight / 3ply. The variety of patterns create an interesting knit for the intermediate knitter.
