Pyrenees Shawl


Pyrenees Shawl
When I first came across the Pyrenees stitch pattern, I fell for the boldness of the diamonds, nested one within the other. I knew right away that I wanted to use this pattern for a shawl couldn’t envision the rest of the shawl details. The design simmered away in the background, finally beginning to coalesce once I found whimsical edging design. The softness of the edging pattern hinted at a pairing with a luxurious fibre, and I knew I had found the match for the special skeins of Sericin Silkworks ‘50/50 Buffalo Silk’ marinating in my stash.

The Pyrenees stitch pattern has only 2 rest rows for every 18 pattern rows and is therefore recommended as an advanced or adventuresome knitting pattern.
