Bonnie Banks was first published in May 2015. Since then it has been a favorite of my shawl patterns amongst my customers, as well as a personal favorite in my own wardrobe!) The original yarn used was a limited batch yarn that’s long gone (Clara Yarn Shetland 1.0), and so I thought it time the pattern received an update with a new (and available!) yarn. This is a triangular, top-down shawl with a fairly simple lace motif. It is easily adjustable if you’d like to make it bigger (or smaller); just be sure to buy extra yarn!

The original gauge is still listed for those who would like to use a worsted weight yarn, as well as the gauge for the new sport weight yarn.

The smaller gray sport weight version and the original undyed version both repeat the lace pattern 4 times total, while the blue sport weight version repeats it 5 times total.
