Beithe Lace Shawl Free Knitting Pattern Download. Designed by Susanna IC.
Skill Level: Intermediate
“Beithe got its name from the ancient Ogham alphabet where each letter is named after a tree; ‘beith’ means birch tree.
The amazing hand dyed colors of this Lisa Souza yarn are a perfect match for the colors of birch leaves in autumn. The yarn is a blend of wool and silk; the wool provides warmth and coziness to the shawl while the silk content enhances the overall drape.
Using just a single skein of this beautiful yarn, Beithe is knitted in one piece starting at the outside edge of the textured border. The shawl’s practical crescent shape is created by a set of short rows, which is worked in easy stockinette stitch and bound off with a 2-stitch I-cord.”
