Kelso Shawl PDF

$ 7.70
Availability: Translation missing: en.general.icons.icon_check_circle icon 50 in stock, ready to be shipped

The Kelso shawl by Helen Stewart takes its name from a charming Scottish border town which lies nestled in the confluence of the Tweed and Teviot rivers. Known for the romance of its ruined abbey, graceful bridges, and cobblestone streets, it is a place to lose yourself in time as you wander along the riverbanks.

Kelso captures the different textures of river and town, with wonderful three-coloured stripes, flickering eyelets and simple lace. The pattern was designed to feature the distinct beauty of the Road to China Light yarn, bringing its complex saturated tones and gentle lustre centre stage.

This elongated triangle shawl is knit from the top down with increases made at the edges.
