This beautiful crochet pattern from Sarah McFall of Yarn and Blarney was designed for Banshee Yarns Yak Sock hand-dyed yarn and we couldn't be more delighted! The stitch pattern is inspired by running water. The Lough Shore stitch pattern was inspired by the view of Belfast Lough and the way that the waves moved across the surface. It is an asymmetrical triangle or wedge shape with alternating post stitches used to create a texture that would replicate the ripples of flowing water.
It is worked in 4 ply and while the pattern is written for one skein, it can be continued until it reaches the desired size. The version shown is a two skein version made in Banshee Yarns Yak Sock, Nightmare.
Finished small shawl measures: 16 x 46”.
Finished large shawl measures: 26.5 x 68”.
