Coorie is the Scots’ word for snuggling or nestling in, and this shawl is perfect to coorie into, especially when knit at the large size. This asymmetric triangular shawl is perfect for the changing seasons. Knit from the smallest point sideways, widening stripes of warm garter stitch and textured lace show off your favourite speckled yarns, while the cabled edge and wide border provide a dramatic contrast. The photos shown are of the large size.

The pattern is fully written and charted so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. A photo tutorial for intarsia is included at the end of the pattern.
