Balla Mara Shawl PDF
A wavy line of eyelets represents bubbly sea waves as they crash against a wall of subtle cable "stones". Thus, the Balla Mara was born, meaning "sea wall” in Gaelic. The shawl work begins at its pointy deepest and by increasing two stitches every right-side row you build a shawl wide enough for wrapping yourself in coziness. The pattern is completely charted and written so that you may rightly navigate all the twists and turns of that wavy line.
