The Scottish Highlands Shawl (from my Celtic Shawl Collection) is worked end-to-end in a completely seamless manner with a nice balance between garter stitch and lace. This design was inspired by a very memorable visit to some incredible, ancient Abbey ruins in Scotland. (See photos.)
This design really shows off hand dyed yarns and will look great in any yarn with good drape. Use up your stash by working the optional eyelet rows and lace border in a contrasting or complementary color.
There are design options included in the pattern so that you can personalize it for you and your yarn of choice. Make it in a larger size, make it with or without the eyelet lace insert ribbons, make it in one color or more, and choose subtle or stunning contrast colors to make this just the way you want it!
