Haar, the grey mist that comes off the North Sea on sunny days, and that is exactly what this beautiful soft grey colour says to me. Perfect for misty mornings in the early spring when there’s still a bit of a nip in the air. Haar is a textured shawl and companion to Ceò. With a really easy repeat it’s perfect relaxing knitting and will fly off your needles. The Picot Bind-Off adds a final feminine flourish and has been carefully designed to extend the mesh lace right to the edge of the shawl.

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. The pattern uses a garter tab cast on, simple increases/decreases, and slipped stitches.

You can get Ceò and Haar together in the From the Mists e-Book or buy them individually. If you later decide you want to buy the second pattern, or the e-Book, the amount you have already paid will be deducted from the price of the collection!
