The Rosaleen Shawl pattern is now available to buy.
It was the first design for the The Knitting Goddess Christmas Club and it was originally knit with their lovely Silk & Alpaca blend in a gorgeous grey called Dove.
The shawl is knitted from the bottom up, starting with the lace border, the body of the shawl is shaped with short rows to make it a crescent shape which can be worn as a traditional shawl or wrapped around like a scarf. When we were at Fibre Flurry we spotted Brenda wearing hers 'in the wild' and very lovely she looked too!
There is also a larger version which needs about 450 yards of yarn - I used 2 skeins of MadelineTosh Tosh merino DK which I've had for a while, the colour is Geode, its a purple with gold undertones, impossible to photograph accurately but stunning in real life!
