Turadh is Gaelic for ‘a break in the weather’ and that is exactly what the stripes in this shawl remind me of – a shining flash of colour through the clouds! Worked from one corner, this asymmetric shawl is great for showing off mini skeins or leftovers in a truly stunning way. The lace stripes feature a zigzag chevron pattern, which is echoed in the chevron striped border. Turadh is a great fun knit with plenty of relaxing bits!
The pattern is fully written and the lace stripes and border are also charted so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. The pattern uses simple increases/decreases.
