Calon Cariad Shawl Kit
When you buy a kit you will receive the printed pattern, yarn, a cotton project bag and some stitch markers.
Calon Cariad is a bottom up shawl with a deep lace border and a single heart motif near the top of the centre back. It has short row shaping to add depth to the shawl and is fully written with charts provided as well.
You can follow this shawl pattern either with the written instructions only or by using the charts for the lace sections. Please note that there are some rows (including all the short row shaping) not included in the charts, so please read the pattern in full before beginning.
My blue sample used 570m of John Arbon Textiles Alpaca 2-3ply. If your gauge is looser you are likely to need more yarn.
This design requires the use of 22 stitch markers, which are included in the kit.
