Aisling by Justyna Lorkowska knitting kit: Rambling Rose and Campanula

A kit to make Aisling; a beautiful knitted shawl by Justyna Lorkowska. Kit includes a skein in each colour of Titus 4ply, a download code for the pattern and an ECY cotton project bag.

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.
