Pretty and romantic

The ‘Aisling’ shawl by Justyna Lorkowska is the height of feminine charm when it comes to pretty, romantic shawls. It’s a perfect accessory to be worn on a date on a spring evening.

For this shawl, you can free two of your precious skeins in one project, so consider using two complementary colours as shown in the sample. The pattern would also stand up well in a single colour, due to the cabled lace border and eyelet features in the main body adding plenty of interest. In terms of base, it works fantastically in a yarn with drapey features to the finished fabric; silk and alpaca blends would be excellent choices.

What would you knit yours in?
