Laneside by Meg Gadsbey


Laneside is a large triangular shawl, knitted on the bias, using two natural shades of Alpaca 8 ply yarn from Adagio Mills.

The shawl features graphic bands of mosaic slipped stitch knitting, using just one colour per row, to create a visually striking, high-contrast shawl.

Laneside is worked in one piece from the top right corner across and downwards, using increases, decreases, and short rows to create an asymmetric shape.
