Shoal

Complimentary with yarn purchase - see below

This pattern is complimentary with the purchase of 2 or more skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Vale, or 4 or more skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Peerie for this project.

Plot your course with Shoal, an ever familiar triangular shawl made anew with a unique asymmetrical side-to-side construction. Then, watch seas of garter stitch, plunging waves, and the wings of waterfowl come together in a beautiful triumvirate, balancing textural and openwork stitches for a beautiful seascape to drape about your shoulders.

This shawl is worked flat from the upper right point to the opposite side; the lace motif is worked from charts only. The Vale and Peerie versions are worked from the same charts and instructions, at differing gauges.
