Isolabella is a simple little garter stitch shawl that requires just one skein of sock yarn to complete. Its gently curving shape is created with short rows and finished with a fun looped edging. The long curly points and light, lofty texture makes it ideal to wear as a scarf.
Isolabella means the beautiful lonely one...
I am always drawn to stunning single skeins of variegated sock yarn, often buying them as souvenirs from travels and treating myself to my favourite hand dyers’ latest creations. This pattern was born out of a desire to make my single skeins shine in all their glory.
