simple Gleem shawl
A laceweight shawl in the beautiful Gleem yarn!
Fyberspates Gleem is a blend of 55% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 45% Silk. It comes in gorgeous hand dyed semi-solid shades.
The shawl is a large elongated semi circle with a simple eyelet border. The laceweight yarn creates a lightweight fabric and the shawl shape is versatile.
This is a good next steps project for those looking to tackle a larger laceweight project. You do need a circular needle to hold all your stitches... but you could start with a straight needle before knitting them onto a 80cm (or longer) circular.
Pattern free with any purchase and available for download soon.
