A long, simple wrap with bold stripes. Keep it monochromatic or make a bold statement of colour. Colour combinations are endless!

Wear as a wrap, scarf or bulky cowl in winter or around your shoulders over a dress in summer. We love the light and airy feel this shawl has without being too heavy—the beauty of the Geilsk Tynd Uld, woolly but lightweight! This will be a long-wearing staple in your wardrobe, Susan already has 3 in hers! Easy stockinette knitting for Netflix binge-watching or a social knitting group with a latte.

This pattern is included in the purchase of a Fort Street Shawl Kit or you can request a free copy with the purchase of Geilsk Tynd Uld from Beehive Wool Shop.
