Ard Banrìon shawl pattern PDF
Ard Banrìon, High Queen in Irish, is the knit companion of Aoibhe Nì’s crochet shawl, Ard Rì, High King.
We decided to design companion shawls with Townhouse Yarns exclusive colourways to show knitting and crochet are equally beautiful.
Kings and queens of crochet and knitting can now wear matchy shawls in crafty harmony!
Ard Banrìon is a large half-pi shawl. It features slipped stitch motifs and easy colourwork, in a regal yarn blend of merino, silk and yak paired with light mohair for an airy, slightly transparent fabric.
