Banyan

A rectangular wrap and a crescent shawl, both featuring the same architectural cable and lace pattern. The dimensionality of the stitch pattern makes the most of the structured BFL laceweight yarn and looks good (but not identical) on both sides.

Help Us Raise Funds for Scottish Trans Alliance!

We would love to see this scarf worked up in a variety of new yarns. To encourage that, from now until the end of October, we’re going to donate 25% of pattern sales for this shawl (along with Caer Idris and Hiraeth) to Scottish Trans Alliance, who work to improve gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion in Scotland.

Also, if you upload finished project pictures to social media or Ravelry by 29th October, you will be entered into a draw to win 5 free Ysolda patterns. Don’t forget to tag us @ysolda and add the hashtag #BanyanShawl if you’re sharing on social media.

You'll be able to download your pattern immediately after checking out and, optionally, add it to your Ravelry library . Create an account to access all of your purchases.

    View A, the wrap, is worked from end to end with lace at each end that can be blocked into points.

    View B, the shawl, is worked bottom up with shaping incorporated into the border pattern. The ribbed columns at the top of the chart continue into the centre, decreasing together as short row wedges are worked to create the shallow shape. The centre stitches are joined with kitchener stitch.
