With cool Fall weather quickly taking over the last vestiges of summer warmth, it’s time to wrap our shoulders to guard against the evening chill. With its classic, top-down crescent shape, the Carryduff shawl is the perfect accessory to gently hug your shoulders against the frosty weather.

Designed with a soothing, textured purl-ridge body, this approachable shawl showcases a delicate, knit-on lace border. Knit from a crocheted provisional cast on, this pattern offers step-by-step directions to support even a beginning knitter, complete with charted and written instructions and helpful tips the whole way through.

An innovative edge treatment teaches an engaging new skill for experienced knitters while ensuring the edge of your shawl is straight and stretchy, just as it should be.

Carryduff is offered in several colour options, including a 1 colour, 2 colour, and 1 colour body with contrasting lace edging. You can even customize the sizing to your liking!

Drape yourself in romantic lace with this enchanting shawl and stay warm all winter long.

Heartfelt thanks to my test knitters and to my Tech Editor, April Ridgeway, New Growth Knits. Your commitment and valuable feedback is greatly appreciated.
