Amberle Shawl Using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter

Amberle Shawl Using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter



24 in stock.

The Design

"Worsted weight texture and grace."

From the lovely Shannon Cook, comes another impossible-to-resist shawl! Our version, knit in the woolen-spun Shelter from Brooklyn Tweed, has the substance, weight, and warmth of a worsted-weight shawl, with a drape and delicate grace that we lovewarm but somehow lighter than air. The pattern contains beautiful photographs with several styling examples, and is written out thoroughly, guiding you row by row. Amberle is worked from the center neck down and out with rhythmic, textural slip and wrap stitches, and finished with a sweeping wide border.

Please note our change in original needle size from written pattern; all information on "The Details" tab.
