The single-ply fingering weight yarn Madelinetosh Tosh
Merino Light knit on larger needles produces a lovely gauzy fabric that
makes this a great summer shawl, Litchfield by Laura Aylor, perfect for a walk on the beach in the early
morning or evening.
Most of the shawl is plain stockinette with decreases at each
side and in the middle, 1 row out of 20 has short-rows and requires a bit of
attention! Knit from the bottom up, you pick up speed as you go and there is no
long cast off – just one final double decrease and you’re done!
