This Irish Shawl (from my Celtic Shawl Collection) is knit end-to-end in a completely seamless manner and will look great in many yarn weights. The pattern is easily adjusted to any size by simply adding or reducing repeat sections. The diagonal bias of the main shawl body really shows off hand-dyed yarns but is equally stunning in a solid color.
This shawl design was inspired by a visit to Ireland: the rugged and rocky moors criss-crossed with rock walls, the Cliffs of Moher (aka the “Cliffs of Insanity” from the movie Princess Bride) with its fortress castle at the very top, and the most incredible Tree of Life jewelry designs at an outdoor market in Howth. Howth itself is a picturesque little seaside village with waves lapping right up to the edge of the main street.
See the travel blog in my Ravelry Group for more stories and information on the inspirations behind the design! It makes it so much fun to make this when you know the back story. Come travel with me!
