Shetland Trader’s Aestlight shawl appealed to me as soon as I saw it. “Stash buster!” thought I.

It’s an easy garter stitch triangle, with an interesting construction. There’s a simple, repetitive lace border, and a knitted-on edging. Quite a quick knit, at fingering weight, and only one skein needed.

In fact, I liked it so much that I have completed three so far…

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.
