Achat Shawl

4.90

This shawl is a great project for anybody: not too difficult for a beginner but interesting enough for advanced knitters too. 
The shawl features both stripes and lace: this gives endless opportunities for variations and I can’t wait to see what colour combinations people will choose.

Add To Cart

The mixture of stripes and lace also means that this is a really adaptable pattern, you can create a more elegant shawl or pick strong, contrasting colours for a more casual look. 
The pattern includes both written instructions and charts.

Achat is the first pattern in the Minerals collection. The Minerals Collection contains three shawl patterns: Achat, Lapis Lazuli and Dioptase. All these shawls feature a combination of stripes and lace.

Take the advantage for buying the whole collection for decreased price and knit eye catching accessories.
