Truly Myrtle - Rilsdale

Regular price $15.90

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

My Great-Grandmother Zoe celebrated her wedding at her parents’ homestead “Rilsdale” in Pahiatua, New Zealand in the spring of 1914. She wore a gown of ivory crepe de chine veiled with lace, her train trimmed with orange blossoms and pearls. By all accounts Zoe was a strong woman, reportedly the first woman to ride astride in the Wairarapa and her wedding was a very  splendid affair.

Rilsdale takes a leaf from Zoe’s book.

She’s an impressive crescent shawl full of terrifically fun techniques and striking details.

Designed to showcase beautiful hand-dyed and gradient yarns, Rilsdale is the perfect pattern for knitters wanting to try their hand at short rows and lace.

Includes links to step-by-step photo tutorials.

Pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited.
