With a mesmerising sense of movement to its mesh-like horizontal lace, the Criostal shawl invokes the flow of water from crystal-clear mountain lakes to bubbling forest streams.
Worked sideways, using a basic lace repeat and simple increases and decreases, this intricate-looking shawl is surprisingly easy to knit, and to adjust in size. When worked at the specified yarn weight and gauge, a single skein makes for a mid-sized, gauzy, lightweight shawl which can also be styled as an elegant scarf. For best resemblence to the sample, work this shawl in a solid, semi-solid, or lightly variegated yarn, with some silk, ramie, or linen content. Criostal is Irish for ‘crystal,’ and is pronounced similarly to the English. Designed by Ailbíona McLochlainn
