I’m very happy to announce my newest pattern release: Priddis.
Priddis is a triangular shawl with a bottom up construction, featuring two lace stitch patterns, and a stockinette body. The inspiration from this shawl came from my home province, Alberta (as it so often does). With the Rockies to the west, and the prairie to the east, this shawl is named after a small hamlet nestled right in between the two in the foothills.
The shawl begins with the lace border reminiscent of the wheat fields, with the main lace patterning evoking the Rocky Mountains. It’s finished off with a stockinette section to the bind off.
The finished measurements of this shawl are 64″ by 20″ using a light fingering yarn, but what I love best is that you can use any weight yarn on this shawl. You can make it light an airy, or large and squishy depending on the yarn you choose. All you need is about 485 yards of your favourite yarn on hand to cast on and start working this shawl.
This is a great transitional piece, and can be worn over the shoulders, or around the neck. It’s perfect as a layering option for autumn and spring: when it’s not quite cold enough for your big woollies to come out, but definitely chilly enough to add an extra layer.
