Eremophila Shawl PDF
Eremophila, also known as Emu Bush, by Ambah O'Brien is one of her favourite native plants to grow and admire. They come in a beautiful range of colours from purple, to pinks to golden which are the colours I have chosen for my Eremophila Shawls. The pattern provides a choice between DK and fingering weight shawls and the fingering weight version can be knit in a single colour or with ten mini skeins. Worked top-down, the symmetrical triangle shape is easy to wear. Chevron patterning and eyelets make this a fun and satisfying project to knit and a dramatic finished result.
