Australis Shawl

On Sale
Added to cart
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 £1 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.

This pattern also includes a large print version for those with additional needs. This includes full written instructions with no reliance on charts, text is black, in Arial, font size 24 and is formatted to be read more easily with a screen reader.

You can find tutorials for the techniques used in this pattern, as well as information on yarn substitution, on my website.
