♫ The Music ♫
Ainnir Shligigh (aka Sligo Maid) is a traditional Irish reel that will lift your spirits and get your toes a’tapping.

There aren’t many fashion ensembles that can’t be accentuated with a lovely rectangular shawl. With a chart that’s easy to decipher, you’ll love to knit Ainnir, making this accessory as fun to make as it is to wear!

Lace, a tiny touch of cables and twisted stitches come together in pleasant harmony in this design. The pattern includes 3 widths so it can be worn as a wide scarf or shawl.

Knitting begins at the centre with a provisional cast on; once one side is completed, the provisional stitches are picked up and the second side is knit to match the first.

Pattern is charted only.
