Shoreline shawl is perfect for throwing on - it’s one of my favourite go to patterns.The elongated triangular shape is long enough to wrap around and short enough to sit perfectly with the V to the front.

It’s a very wearable design that’s knitted edge to edge in a beautiful alpaca yarn that gives a gentle drape and slight stretch. The decorative crochet bobble trim adds a spot of interest and the chance to create your own colour palette.

The pattern is written using UK terms throughout, and has step by step picture guide for all crochet techniques.
