A sister design to the Iara wrap pattern, the Iara Shawl uses the beautiful yarns from Kettle Yarn Co. to create graphic lines flowing from the centre to the edges, like waves breaking on a riverbank. Stripes, lace and slipped stitches combine to make the shawl shimmer with movement and keep the knitting interesting.

I chat about the shawl in Episode 39 of the EastLondonKnit Podcast.
