Kiah Shawl - Ambah O’Brien
Pick your favourite luxurious yarn and make every day more beautiful with Kiah shawl. Kiah grew out of a collaboration with local Australian yarn dyer Oyster Yarns. Simple garter stitch sets off a spectacular central lace panel that grows with the shawl, resulting in a large, airy piece perfect for warm weather wearing. The pattern is worked top-down in a symmetrical crescent shape and is lovely in any colour that strikes your fancy, from pale, go-with-anything neutrals to deep, saturated jewel tones. Choose one special skein from your stash and knit up the versatile small size, or pick two skeins for the generous large.
