We’ve just released our Steall Shawl knitting pattern. It’s a quick knit that’s mainly garter stitch with a stunning lace design that’s much easier than it looks. Plus there’s a video tutorial for it! This is designed for a gradient miniskein set of 4ply yarn, but it would work perfectly with leftover odds and ends of sock yarn too. There’s detailed instructions for customizing it for different sizes and numbers of colours.
The pattern is similar to our Bracklinn Crop so I named it after another Scottish waterfall. The Steall Waterfall is found in Glen Nevis, a stunning beauty spot near Scotland’s highest mountain. The colours match with a waterfall theme too!
You can purchase this pattern here on this website, on Ravelry or on Etsy.
