The perfect shawl for outdoor socializing in spring and fall. Named for the oldest lighthouse (built in 1860) on Canada’s west coast , this design is made for those brisk and windy days. We chose Rowan Felted Tweed for maximum coziness combined with chic; it’s a plied blend of wool, alpaca and viscose that knits to a soft fabric with medium drape. Peaceful knitting, ideal for watching TV or listening to a podcast.

This pattern is included in the purchase of a Fisgard Lighthouse Shawl Kit or you can request a free copy with the purchase of Rowan Felted Tweed from Beehive Wool Shop.
