Edinburgh Lanes Shawl Kit


Helen Stewart has teamed up with A Yarn Story and Magpie Fibres to produce the gorgeous asymmetrical Edinburgh Lanes Shawl, which alternates sections of cosy garter stitch with a simple lace-stitch pattern.

Launched at 2019’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival, the shawl’s gentle, wandering fade, stripes and texture bring to mind the secret alleyways and shifting views of the city.
This is a relaxing and rewarding knit designed to show off three skeins of lovely yarn.
