Speckled and tonal yarns will look their best – as will you – in the simple texture, gentle colour shift and perfect shoulder-hugging shape of this delicate, feminine shawl. Inanda’s deep crescent grows from the top down with carefully spaced increases forming I-cord edged wings on either side. Single-row stripes create a subtle colour fade and an applied lace border completes this elegant classic. This shawl was designed specifically for my Great Auntie Cathie and is named Inanda after the house she called home for most of my life.

I have also written a blog post where detailed instructions are provided for adapting the pattern for a larger shawl if desired. Please find that here:
