Olwen Shawl Kit - Large - British Alpaca Silk Lace (AKL)
Olwen is a crescent shaped shawl knitted from the top down in an original lace pattern. Worked on a 3.25mm circular needle, the Large size measures approximately 200cm wide and 60cm deep at the back. It is finished with a lace edging and there are options for beading.
The kit includes the printed pattern and a 100g (800m) skein of our 70% British Baby Alpaca, 30% Mulberry Silk Laceyarn, sufficient to make the Large Laceweight version of the shawl as written. Beads are not included in the kit.
The allover beaded version requires approximately 1,200 beads, and to bead just the edging needs 400 beads. We recommend size 6 seed beads for this yarn - see our colour range here.
The pattern is both charted and written in full, and also includes instructions for Small (4-ply) and Medium (fine lace) versions of the design.
