Product Details

This large rectangular shawl makes use of an innovative circular steeked construction that produces a fringed edge. The complex cables were inspired by the varying weights of Celtic knot interlace often seen in illuminated manuscripts; in the central braid, thinner twisted stitch cables alternate in a contrasting colour to the main cable. All of the colourwork is done with slipped stitch cables, and therefore no stranding or intarsia is required. The triangular knots at the edges are a reference to the Lindisfarne manuscript, which gives this shawl its name.

Skill Level Advanced. Skills required include: • Provisional cast-on • Complex closed-loop cabling • I-cord cast-off • Slipped stitch colour-work cables • Twisted stitch cables
