Beachcomber Shawl Pattern now available!

I'm delighted to tell you that my Beachcomber Shawl pattern is now available in my Ravelry and Payhip designer stores! Beachcomber is knitted in the Birlinn Yarn Company's gorgeous Hebridean 4ply yarn in the stunning shade of Corn Marigold.

My shawl design is inspired by a tiny piece of seaweed washed up on a beautiful beach in the Outer Hebrides. The delicate seaweed motif is recreated in my knitting with twisted stitches and eyelets on a garter stitch background.

As well as this wonderful Corn Marigold shade, there are several more beautiful shades of The Birlinn Yarn Company's Hebridean 4ply and the Beachcomber Shawl would look amazing in any of them! Yarn kits are available through The Birlinn Yarn Company website. Also on the website, you will find both of my Crowood Press books for sale - A Knitter's Guide to Shawl Design and A Knitter's Sketchbook!
