Eyelet Shawl


Worked in one piece from the top down this shawl is the perfect introduction to shawl knitting. It works up quickly and easily in the Luma, with the beautiful blend creating a delightfully warm piece that can be easily worn across the seasons. This project walks you through a dedicated shawl cast on, the garter tab, and introduces you to simple eyelets and the joy of blocking to finish your shawl.

Foundations: The first wobbly scarf you knit and knotted proudly around your neck to keep out the cold. The handmade mittens you wore as a child, a gift from a beloved relative. When we think about the hours spent making those items, we understand that they are an act of love. It’s the time you set aside for your own creativity that day. It’s the way you felt as your beloved pulled on your hat as they left for work that day. Each stitch, a hidden wish. The gift of handmade is at the core of our latest series of design collections. We named it ‘Foundations’ because these are the building blocks for a lifelong hobby in which we can clothe ourselves and our loved ones in beautiful colours and texture.
