Herringbone stripes zig-zag happily through this semi-circular shawlette, separating swaths of stockinette stitch colour blocks. These blocks, shaped by short rows, are a perfect showcase for the gorgeous characteristic texture and colours of Blacker Tamar Lustre Blend. It’s a rustic yarn spun from rare British breeds, available in a range of rich hues which add to the medieval feel of the accessory. Style it with a matching cast iron shawl pin to channel the look of the dark ages, and add a bit of time-travel to your wardrobe!
Because herringbone is one of the more difficult knitting stitches, Ydalir is aimed at the experienced knitter.
