Pattern - Truly Myrtle Skein Sisters Shawl


| /

There’s something special about the unspoken bond between women that love yarn and needles.

Skein sisters share a secret; we each know the deep pleasure of gorgeous yarn and breath-taking colour and all feel waves of calm as stitches slip through our fingers in gentle rhythm.

A contemporary twist on classic stripes and lace, Skein Sisters celebrates the sisterhood of knitting. It’s a beautiful, sweeping shawl perfect for draping around your shoulders to show off the dramatic movement in the design or snuggling around your neck to jazz up jeans and a t-shirt.

Full of exciting techniques such as short rows and i-cord, clearly written and simpler than they seem, the pattern also includes written and charted instructions and links to tutorials.

Skein Sisters is an entertaining knit, suitable for experienced knitters and advanced beginners who love a challenge.
