Woolgatherers will know that I have been honoured to be selected by Rosematy (Romi) Hill as one of her test knitters. The Merope Shawl, recently completed, was my first test knit for Romi – this little sock weight shoulder shawl is my second. I made mine in Posh Yarn’s Elinor yarn and I added some size 6/0 beads from my bead stash.

Brandywine is a special pattern – most of the sale price is donated to MSF.

Simply the most wearable of shawls; a garter stitch body is knitted from the point upwards, maximising use of yarn, with a stocking stitch lace border and point edging added as you go. It is reminiscent of Aestlight, but the construction is very different indeed.

I made mine from a stashed skein of Smooshy.
