We’ve had our eye on the Simple Lines pattern by Maanel for ages and last month we decided to cast on a rustic interpretation of this shawl using Isager’s Tvinni yarn – a premier merino lamb’s wool that is soft and fine but with beautiful structure. The pure, natural look of this yarn works well with the spareness of the overall shawl design and the lace detailing on the edge adds just the right amount of interest and feminine flare. Deep enough to be worn as a shawl and long enough to wrap around the neck and tied like a scarf.
Note: Simple Lines is a free pattern on Ravelry.
Stay tuned for two more versions of this project (some patterns just beg to be knit more than once) in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light and Handmaiden Lino…!
