IMG_0027I released the Alongshore Shawl last week, my first collaboration with the fascinating and enchanting Mrs Crosby.

If you’re in the industry, you’ll be able to see this in person at the Mrs Crosby / Lorna’s Laces booth at TNNA in Phoenix.

The cables are worked with a simple combination of intarsia (yarn butterflies for each cable strand) and stranding (the grey is carried across the back of the cables).
