The striking Eathie Shawl was designed by my friend Emily Williams. It was designed originally for the 2016 clip of three special ewes Horse, Frankenstein and Monkey Face and their limited supplies of yarn.
The Eathie Shawl pattern been amended to include DK weight (and in fact can be knit at any weight). The Light DK sets will knit a shawl slightly larger than the original and the 4 ply sets will knit a shawl considerably larger than the original (original shawl is approx 170 x 70 cm). The lace itself is simple and relaxing knitting requiring only increases, decreases and yarn overs.
Each kit will include a printed copy of the pattern (and a Ravelry download code) plus three 100g skeins of Light DK weight or 4 ply yarn (two naturally dyed skeins and one undyed skein).
The various yarns included in these kits are as follows (see each colour way for specific yarns included):
Cross Breeds Blend – BFL, Cheviot, Lincoln & Hampshire
Horse’s Daughter – BFL, Cotswold & Cheviot
Frankenstein – BFL, Cotswold & Cheviot
