Yealm Shawl

One of the hardest things about designing is keeping new designs under wraps until you can share them. This collaboration with Kettle Yarn Co was no exception!  I was asked to create a crochet design using Linda's gorgeous blue Baskerville yarn - a blend of Gotland, Exmoor Blueface and silk that is a lovely and lightweight yarn with just the right amount of silkiness and sheen.  Yealm forms part of the  from Dust to Dawn collection a set of 4 patterns: 

Courtney Spainhower – Bovey, cardigan
Hanna Maciejewska – Walkham, cardigan
Linda Lencovic – Teign, colourwork wrap
Kat Goldin – Yealm, crochet shawl

A cosy crochet shawl, Yealm is shaped by increasing by one stitch each row at the neck edge for the first third of the shawl. The middle third of the shawl is worked even, then the last third of the shawl is decreased by one stitch at the neck edge each row, creating its long crescent shape.
