Ysolda Ishbel PDF
Ysolda Teague's Ishbel is a simple shawl pattern that can be worked in two sizes and two different yarn weights. The smaller, fingering weight version makes a cozy scarf while the larger, lace weight version can be worn as a scarf or draped elegantly around the shoulders. The solid stockinette center lends simplicity to the design and adds extra warmth when knitted in thicker yarn. Ishbel is edged with a beautiful vine pattern and finished with elegant scalloped points. The shawl begins at the center and is worked outward to the edging. Working increases at both ends of every row, rather than every second, creates a relatively shallow triangular shawl that makes it the perfect shape to wear as a scarf. Either size can be worked in either yarn weight. The lace pattern is charted and written out.
