This pattern, one of several Helen Stewart shawls in my queue, has been waiting for it’s turn since EYF 2019. It was one of two pattern/yarn collaborations she released for the show, but I only got the Edinburgh Lanes colourway and chose my own pairings to go with it.
I’m so happy with the way this turned out. The yarn is delicious and the garter stitch makes it even more squishy. The colours play really well into one another, with the Smoke and Mirrors colour having elements of both the neutral greys and browns, and the rich teal of Masquerade.
The alternating garter, stockinette and lace are relaxing and simple to knit and this is a great pattern for blending yarns together. Simple but effective!
