Inspired by a beautiful stone wall on the coastal footpath near Silecroft Beach in Cumbria, this long narrow crescent-shaped shawl is perfect for keeping cosy and warm during a leisurely walk. This shawl is packed with texture; featuring a textured cable pattern, with smooth stocking stitch folds, a twisted stitch pattern, and a central garter stitch section. Each texture represents a different material in the British stone wall Emma Vining was inspired by.
The lustrous warm qualities of Cumbria, made from Merino wool, Masham wool, and mohair, will make this shawl not only a joy to knit, but perfect to wear for many years.
