A’ Mhuir means “the sea” in Scottish Gaelic. I designed this shawl during the lockdown, inspired by my daughter who desperately wanted to go to the beach. The deep blue of the body is the calm deep sea while the border is the little rippling wavelets that run up the beach. The perfect accessory for spring or summer, A’ Mhuir will keep off the chill on those gloriously sunny but breezy days!
The pattern is fully written and charted so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. The pattern uses a garter tab cast on, simple increases/decreases, and slipped stitches.
