This large triangular shawl is knitted prominently in garter stitch which is broken up by three panels of lace. You cast on at the widest edge and decrease along the left side to give the shawl its shape.
Claire Walls wanted to design a shawl that was pure comfort to knit and wear. It is an extremely intuitive knit that you can get lost in. The name Hiraeth is Welsh for homesickness or nostalgia, and Claire first started thinking of this pattern after she had moved from the UK to Canada.
