Lough Shore Shawl Crochet Pattern
Lough Shore was inspired by the view of Belfast Lough and the way that the waves moved across the surface. It is an asymmetrical triangle or wedge shape with alternating post stitches used to create a texture that would replicate the ripples of flowing water. I love it so much that I have made 3, once you are used to the pattern it is a very rhythmical to make.
The pattern is written for a small size but it is easily adapted to be any size that you want by continuing in the pattern, the only limit is your amount of yarn! If using multiple skeins of hand dyed yarn, I would suggest alternating between them to avoid any unintentional colour blocking.
It is perhaps best suited to an adventurous beginner as, although it is not difficult, post stitches may be unfamiliar and take some getting used to. It is written in English using UK crochet terms
