There will be a KAL for the Killarone Shawl. This is in collaboration with the Maine Yarn Cruise. It will run from Sept. 1, 2022 - Oct. 10, 2022 You can sign up here.

The Killarone Shawl is named after the city of Killarone, in County Galway, Ireland, which has the beautiful Aughnanure Castle.

The shape of the lace in the shawl reminds me of the curved doorway and the stockinette broken by eyelets is reminiscent of the windows that break up the stone face of the main tower of this striking castle.

This two-skein, crescent-shaped shawl—with both written and charted directions—is easy enough for an adventurous beginner knitter but engaging enough for an advanced one. Filled with stockinette, lace, eyelets, and a garter border. This timeless design is very wearable either around the shoulders traditionally or worn around the neck like a scarf.
