I really like Ysolda Teague’s shawl designs. One of the first that I knit was Ishbel.
In fact, I know I knit one more that I forgot to take pictures of! Four of them, I really liked that pattern.
Another pattern I really enjoyed was Sherilyn (apparently I didn’t take a post-blocking photo):
This past fall, Ysolda decided to do a lovely shawl club, with British yarns from local sources. I was totally in, because there is rarely a pattern I don’t like. Let me introduce you to Stac Shoaigh, which is knit from a really cool wool-alpaca blend yarn spun just for the club from Soay sheep from islands in the St Kildaire archipelago. The pattern has this really cute petal shape at the top of the neck:
Before blocking it was ok:
But after blocking, it is really lovely with a lot of drape!
I can’t wait for the next installment!
