Mohair eyelashAutumn ShawlIn the recent newslatter from Lion brand yarns there were some free patterns for shawls. This one appealed to me as it was lacy and solid. I set about knitting it in different yarns to see if this made any difference to the outcome.

The one at the bottom is James C. Brett’s marble chunky in those lovely autumn colours. The yarn is 100% acrylic making it light, warm and machine washable for easy care.

The shawl in the top picture was done in Patons High Society which is a mohair/wool mix with a polyester eyelash thread wrapped around it. This shawl is a little heavier than the acrylic one and also very warm. The eyelash thread is quite sparkly and would make this a nice option for an evening event or a wedding.
