Adah means adornment or firstborn. I felt this was an appropriate name for this design, created for my “First Shawl” class. The pattern includes instructions for both Fingering and DK weight versions, and is a versatile project, intended as an invitation to play; use any yarn with needles to suit and have some fun. Work yours in a single colour, play around by creating a fade, stripes or work only the eyelets in a contrasting shade —the possibilities are endless. Finish up by choosing between two bind off options to further customise your project.
Adah is an asymmetrical triangle shawl with sets of 3 eyelets at intervals between garter sections.

Perfect for an adventurous beginner, Adah also includes a video tutorial for the Picot Bind off. See the video here.
