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! Shown in two sizes, a two-color smaller scarf and a five-color ombre version in a larger shawl size. The non-lacy stitch pattern is cushy yet airy, and easy to work! This pattern is a great way to incorporate mini skein sets!
