Irish Sea


Irish Sea is a super-wearable triangle shawl with beautiful drape and fluidity. The crisp stitch definition from Meadow emphasises the rhythmic garter stitch and delicate lace as it travels down the edge of the shawl. The size can be adjusted, according to your taste, by knitting more or less repeats.
