At the Market, by Ilga Leja.
When it’s time to go shopping, it’s the perfect time for a generous shawl to wrap around your shoulders. Make it a special one that shows off the subtle gradations of colour in a handpainted yarn.
Using a simple lace stitch pattern combined with Reverse Stockinette Stitch, this sumptuous stole is worked entirely on the diagonal, giving this piece its exquisite drape.
The pattern contains two versions of this shawl: a scarf or a full-size shawl.
