Laura Chau Ilkley Shawl PDF

Ilkley by Laura Chau is a triangular shawl, knit from the bottom up - you start with lots of stitches but start decreasing right away! No casting off hundreds of stitches. Shown in two sizes, a two-colour smaller scarf and a five-colour ombre version in a larger shawl size. The non-lacy stitch pattern is cushy yet airy, and easy to work! Perfect for small amounts of sock yarns or handspuns.

This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
