Aisling by Justyna Lorkowska Add-on Kit

This is the Aisling Add-On Kit... simply choose your yarn and add it to your basket, along with this add-on, and I will make it up into a kit for you - it will include the pattern, an ECY printed cotton project bag, and a sachet of Soak (random scent).

Please note that we will only post out this add-on as part of a full kit, ie. with the the yarn bought for the shawl (at least 400m of each colour).

Justyna designed this shawl to celebrate visiting Edinburgh Yarn Festival.. we both wore our shawls there and they were much admired, and lovely to wear. Being a generously sized crescent shape, this shawl works both worn wrapped cosily around the neck, and draped around the shoulders. 

Aisling is a “dream” or “vision”. Make it your dream too. <3

The shawl begins at the center and is worked outwards to border. There are two yarn-over increases in every row which create a long banana-like shape. The shawl is worked in Stockinette stitch with eyelets, which resemble raindrops, interrupted by Garter stripes. The lacy cabled border is worked sideways at the end and attached to the body by means of simple decreases and slipped stitches.
The sample shawl is worked in two contrasting colors but would look equally beautiful when knit in just one.

Size
One: approx. 200 cm/80” wide and 50 cm/20” long at center.

Yarn
2 skeins (one of each colour) of Eden Cottage Yarns Titus 4ply. Original sample made in colours CC1 - Rambling Rose and CC2 - Campanula.

Needles
3.5 mm/US #4 circular needle (100 cm/40” long).

Other
2 stitch markers, tapestry needle for weaving.

Gauge
22 sts and 28 rows = 10 cm/4” in St st measured flat after wet blocking.
Additional working gauge: 24 sts and 30 rows = 10 cm/4” in St st measured flat before wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
