Cordillera is a triangular shawlette inspired by the 1999 song “Cordillera” by Argentinian rock band Los Enanitos Verdes. Cordillera uses Old Shale, a traditional Shetland lace similar to Feather and Fan. Yarn is carried along the sides of the work to minimize the amount of ends to weave in. Tassels and stripes add an elegant but bohemian look to the piece. This pattern would be an excellent way to showcase some handspun yarn, especially when paired with a simply spun yarn.

File is a PDF download that includes a tutorial on making the tassels.  This is a free pattern, if you like it check out my other patterns!

Skill Level: Beginner. Knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog, changing colours.

Size: Stitch pattern is repeatable until you are happy or yarn runs out! Leave enough yarn for 1 more row + a stretchy cast-off.
