Notes From the Designer:
Ireland is well known for its “40 shades of green,” but in Autumn, you will also find a vast array of golds, rusts, and browns, as well as many shades of blue in both water and sky. The patchwork of fields, divided by grey and white stone walls, are a reminder of the tenacity of the people who created them. Fascinating stone structures are plentiful, such as the impressive, ancient site of Newgrange, a large, circular passage tomb and an ancient temple. At over 5000 years old, it is older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids.
This boomerang shaped shawl was inspired by the colors and textures of the land. Cables and slipped stitches create lines and circles to represent the divisions of fields, an abundance of stones, and the rich heritage of the Irish people.
- Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial on how to work the special stitches in the pattern.
- Making a gauge swatch is critical to achieving the desired results. Please DO NOT assume that you knit to the same gauge as I do! Yes, it is an extra step, but it also ensures that what you are knitting will produce what you expect. And you won’t need to worry about running out of yarn. If you are substituting yarn, it is especially important to verify that it behaves in the same way as the yarn called for in the pattern.
- Typically, when working slipped stitches, you want to carry the yarn loosely behind the work, so as not to gather the work. In this case, however, you DO want to raise the stitches in the columns. Do not pull the yarn tightly, but work it with your normal tension.
- Stitch counts are designated in the Border instructions as: (#border sts/total sts).
- The M1p may be worked either left leaning or right leaning.

Stunning pattern! I ADORE the Bryna Hues kit - it's my favourite colorway! I hope it will come back in stock soon.
Pretty design!!! ❤️
Instructions well thought off, watched the video for the sample size, this has been added to my long to do lust
Gorgeous colors I have no time to make all patterns I love that you share but this one will be up the list. Thank you!!!!
It’sa lovely shawl pattern, and I’m excited to make it. However, I’m still looking for the perfect yarn to make it in, so I haven’t even cast on yet.
Thank you, look forward to working it!
it's a great pattern. easy to read
Wow! I can't keep up with all the beautiful patterns.
It's beautiful clear instructions.
I just love all the patterns, now just need time to work on them! Thank you so much
50%silk-50%cotton. A lovely yarn in a color produces an overall effect of chocolate streaked with silver. The swatch knit easily on metal needles. But note, that the swatch has almost zero stretch, and I wouldn't go higher than 4 mm needles for a garment.
I absolutely loved this! I had a bit of a rough start but that’s just me. Lol! But it’s a beautiful shawl! This one and Crossaster are a couple of my favorites for sure!
I haven’t had a chance to work it yet. Thank you!
