Edmonia Shawl

Shawl Knitting PatternThe Edmonia Shawl by Anne Hanson is featured in Interweave Knits Fall 2016. The pattern can be purchased on its own or with the magazine.

The Edmonia Shawl is mix of simple-to-work eyelet and mesh motifs arranged in pattern blocks meant to emulate industrial construction materials. The off-kilter positioning of the motifs evokes the look of high-rise construction projects from a sidewalk level. Its large size and light fabric offer plenty of options for arranging the shawl in a variety of ways.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The original yarn listing was incorrect. It stated the pattern required Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup DK. The correct yarn is Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup Fingering. We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion this may have caused.
