Shawlands was inspired by my love of black tea. It is hearty, robust, comforting, and warming — like snuggling inside on a chilly autumn’s day with a cup of tea and a good book.
This generously-sized shallow triangle shawl is worked from the top down in two colors of DK-weight yarn. Stockinette stitch and lace in the main color and sections of garter stitch and eyelets in the contrasting color alternate throughout the body of the shawl. A lace border with a picot bind-off finishes off the design.
