Yealm Shawl - Crochet pattern
Before I stepped onto a moor, I imagined them as dry, unyielding places. It only took one step to realise that the exact opposite is true, with them full of rushing creeks, enormous bogs and mini-waterfalls at every hill, no matter how big or small. This wrap is inspired by
the small rivulets, streams, puddles and rivers that carve themselves across the moorland and designed to use the full length of these beautiful skeins.
