Kinbaine Shawl Kit
We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make these lovely socks along with the pattern, a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!
The Kinbaine Crochet Shawl pattern is designed by our friend Fay Daspher-Hughes. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn.
Kinbaine is a top-down crocheted shawl, getting narrower as you go. It’s an easy pattern that uses one simple stitch for the main body, with a series of colour changes in sections. Each colour section is topped and tailed with a series of stitches to mimic the infamous coloured rooftops along the seafront town of Whitehead, Northern Ireland. Whitehead was formerly known as Kinbaine, or an Cionn Bán – ‘the white head’ in Irish.
