With her sweeping lines, oodles of texture & magnificent fringe, Maycroft is a shawl that’ll put a swing in your step, a glint in your eye and make you feel fabulously boho.

She’s large, cosy and looks fantastic draped around your shoulders, wrapped around your neck or snuggled over jeans.

Maycroft is a delicious combination of simple knitting and striking lace panels, pulled together with a long fringe, and she’s exactly the kniting you need when you’re out and about, knitting and chatting or feeling like an easy, rhythmic knit.

Perfect for experienced knitters and wonderful for beginners, Maycroft is knitted from the top down, is full of stitches that are easy to master and includes clear directions for making the fringe.

Lace instructions are both written and charted.
