Inspired by the Southern Lights, the Australis Shawl features sweeping short row lace sections inspired by the lights’ dance across the night sky, providing moments of interest amid the stocking stitch background. Finished with a knit-on edging this crescent shaped shawl provides interest alongside more restful knitting, making it the perfect project for travelling or relaxing. This two colour shawl would be a great way to show off your special skeins of 4ply.
This shawl has been designed to raise awareness for a charity very close to my heart and £2 from the sale of every pattern will be donated to Cancer Research UK, the world’s largest cancer charity, so they can continue their mission to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
All patterns include a large print version which includes: full written instructions, all text in black, Arial font, size 22, with no italics used.
