This listing is for a digital download of the knitting pattern for the shawl.
Geometric lace and two-coloured textured stitches, what fun! The Pearroc Shawl is a large triangular shawl that’s perfect for bundling up on chilly winter days. The name ‘Pearroc’ is the Old English word for a field or area enclosed by a fence – and all those little eyelet diamonds
reminded me of a patchwork of fields on a hillside, with the moss stitch recalling furrowed earth.
The shawl begins at the centre top with a tab, then stitches are increased at the edges and spine to create the triangle shape. The lace pattern is charted and written; the two-colour moss stich is written only.
