Queensway Shawl knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh

Queensway Shawl

A little Mohair goes a long way with this lovely pink cloud. You’ll want to use every inch of the extra generous proportions to cacoon yourself in its marshmallow-soft textures, and you’ll have plenty of length to attractively drape your lace with a little fabulously studied nonchalance.

The Queensway Shawl is a rectangular shawl started with a provisional cast on, which is later picked up for the all-around lace edge. The unusual “tuck” stitches are used to create a diamond motif over a ground of reverse stockinette. Beads are placed to emphasize the tucked stitches. This pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
