“My inspiration was the rugged textural landscape of the Cornish coastline where we spend many holidays. I was especially interested in the way the sea mist rises up and cloaks the landscape, covering and moving between the rocks. The lace weight brioche section is light an airy and highlights the structure of the stitch whereas the heavier Shetland wool speaks more of the rustic land.”
This asymmetric triangle shawl begins at the right side point. Alternating between ribbed lace and single colour brioche which turns into two colour brioche between the 4ply and lighter lace weight yarn. Finally a light lace weight single colour brioche section is worked.
