Product Description

Street-smart and gorgeously feminine, Ainu is a new shawl by Isabell Kraemer designed using Big Merino Hug by Rosie Green Wool. It can be knitted larger or smaller and the extraordinary, elegant lace pattern creates an exciting contrast to the casual garter stitch section. With a name that is reminiscent of the aborigines of North Japan, no matter how we combine this versatile piece, we can't wait to cut loose and go out with it! Ainu is worked from the narrow point of the left edge, increasing to full side of the right edge. Stitches are increased every RS row to full width of lace pattern, then incorporated in garter stitch to the end of the shawl.
