Norah's Shawl

Norah’s Shawl was made for my granddaughter to commemorate her christening. This is more of a guide than a pattern - there are suggestions for making casting on in cobweb lace a little easier and options for creating a full or ‘more than full’ circle. The shawl can be made as large as your yarn or fingertips allow, with the investment in time making this a lovely heirloom piece.  It creates a perfect accessory for draping around babies or your own shoulders for a special occasion. At only £2, this is less than a fancy coffee and every penny from this design is donated to  Refuge  - for women and children; against domestic violence.   Check on or @knitrospective on Instagram for donation updates
