When knitting a Lá breá shawl you can make an image journey to Ireland, to the emerald green island. Let your mind wander into its sea smelling climate, its fabulous beaches and it’s never-ending meadows and moors, its meandering hills and lakes until they reach the sides of small mountains and hills.

 You can also hear the exotic Irish language. For example, "Lá breá" means "beautiful day". There's a funny story attached to that phrase, as Irish speakers living in West Coast villages have a habit to use it to a mockery of people who can't say anything else in Irish than "beautiful day today"

The Irish language sounds so charming, that I would love to be Lá breá for a moment.



A traditionally romantic shawl that can be worn on any occasion; around your neck or on your shoulders, for your self or to be given for someone precious. The shawl is almost identical from both sides, including the color stripes. Beautiful little picots give the final touch for the lace trim on the edge.

The shawl is started from the middle of the neck by Arteeni's Method. The starting point is almost invisible and probably no-one can see how it was started afterward. 

The finished shawl size is 143 x 67 cm.

The sample shawl is knitted of two hanks of Misanja hand-dyed Merino single yarn (100% Merino Superwash Wool, 366 m / 100 g) in yellow shades; the consumption for the darker yarn was about 80 grams and the lighter about 90 grams.

Written instruction, in addition; a chart of the lace border. 

The instruction difficulty level is intermediate. The shawl is rather easy to knit but the new starting method and the lace border give some challenge for a beginner.
