All of the freebies copies have now been claimed - but if you like freebies, there’s still another chance to get one - see below:

There’s a KAL over in the stitchnerds group and if you complete a shawl and post pics of the finished item on ravelry and/or on Instagram before the end of August 2017, I’ll send you a freebie pattern of your choice - so come on over and show us your cables (don’t worry they’re mock cables so very easy and relaxing to make) - link to KAL thread

As a knitter I’ve always longed to go to the Orkney Islands - this year I made it as far as a boat trip to Stroma, which fascinated me - inhabited now for over 50 years by just sheep (well, there was a lightkeeper until the 90’s, but no inhabitants since the early 60’s)

so this is a little tribute to the hardy souls who once lived there - and the sheep who still do.

Knitted with DK - aran weight yarn (or lighter weights held double) this is great roadtip knitting - easy to memorize and no cable needle to lose. ☻

Instructions are provided both as a chart and written out, so you can choose whichever you prefer.

Shape is an asymmetric triangle, but not a boomerang, which means the top edge is straighter.
