Morrígan

Let’s celebrate our new blog layout with a free pattern!

Let me introduce Morrígan the great queen, a goddess of Irish mythology. She is a godess of War and an omen of death, but also a symbol of fertility. Morrígan, often taking the form of a crow, also inspired courage in warriors and would even fight on the side of the rightful king.

Do you have 2 skeins of Hedgehog Fibres Pure Cashmere lace lying around? then indulge yourself in truly luxurious knitting with the warmest and softest of cashmere yarns.
This stunning lace shawl uses only basic lace stitches. If you have knitted lace before, this one will be a breeze. Suitable for an adventurous beginner also, the charts are easy to read and to memorize.

The shawl is knitted flat, and it is charted instructions only. (Do not worry, the charts are really easy to read and to memorize.) You’ll need a 4mm needle and basic skills like ssk, k2tog and yarn over.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Heading into an ominous time of year, this shawl should give you strength and gird you against the cold and dark. Choose a dark mystical colourway (Grape, Vengeance, Raven, Graphite, Malice… our colour palette is here, I will be dyeing the colours mentioned for the next update)
The pattern is easily adjustable for bigger or smaller sizes. I think our Sock Yarn would work quite nicely as well, giving a more substantial result. Get it here, or click on the patterns button at the top of the page.
Enjoy!
