The inspiration for this shawl comes both from the Spanish landscape and from the Spanish wool used for the sample. Sand ripples on the beach suggested the name of ‘Las Playas,’ which is triangular in shape and which, despite its cabled appearance, is actually an all-over lace pattern.

A stretchy bind-off provides a neat finish to the graphic design, which is easy to work from fully written-out directions with stitch counts, as well as a schematic and an easy-to-read chart.

This kit includes 4 skeins of Baa Ram Ewe Eden dk in Moonglade (or any colour in the range just add colour to special instructions at check out), pdf pattern and project bag.

I selected this yarn for its very soft/cosy texture, it will make you feel you are having a hug each time you wear it.
