Item details

This PDF KNITTING PATTERN provides full instructions for how to create your own Pennae Shawl. Pennae (Latin for feathers) is a light and feathery asymmetrical triangular shawl that utilizes the beauty of Anzula’s new silk and wool blend yarn. Pennae starts out with just one stitch and grows from there, with a simple solid section transitioning into lace stripes, after which a lovely plume of lace finishes the shawl. The lace is an uncomplicated pattern based on Barbara Walker’s Porcupine Stitch – a chart and written directions have both been provided for easy execution. Have fun picking colors -- either bold contrast or tone-on-tone, two colors or three -- whatever you choose will make for a pretty multi-seasonal piece.
