Make This Cottage Highlands Shawl
The Perfect Shawl For The Coming Chilly Months

Scottish Higlands Shawl

The Scottish Highlands Shawl (from the Celtic Shawl Collection of Kay Hopkins) is worked end-to-end in a completely seamless manner. This design was inspired by a very memorable visit to some incredible, ancient Abbey ruins in Scotland.

There is a nice balance between garter stitch and lace work that makes it a fun project.

This design really shows off hand dyed yarns and will look great in any yarn with good drape.

This pattern is made with Malabrigo yarn and we have a large selection of those yarns. There are size and design options included in the pattern so that you can personalize it for you and your yarn choice. Make it with or without the eyelet lace insert ribbons, make it in one color or several, and choose subtle or stunning contrast colors.

One Color Scheme: 430 – 500 yards Larger size: 936 yds 856m
