This lightweight, triangular shawl was designed to celebrate the launch of a gorgeous new yarn: The Fibre Company‘s Arranmore Light, a luxurious blend of merino wool, cashemere and silk.

Inspired by traditional British woollen fabrics, the North Shawl features a two-colour slip stitch pattern worked with only one colour at a time. The beautiful texture it creates looks intricate while being very easy to make. The design makes lofty, natural yarns shine, and can be worked at various gauges. With its top-down construction and attached border, the North Shawl is a very relaxing knit.

This pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited.
