The Royale II Garter Knit Shawl Knit Kit was designed by me – Michelle Joy (Stewart), written in a less traditional style to be less technical and give the crafter room to adjust the fit and style.
Based of the original Royale (which was knit in Smooth Merino) this pattern was updated to extend a little further and be knit in the fun colours of Sumptuous. The pattern starts with a long cast on edge featuring eyelets, before making it’s way every smaller on the bias – until just one stitch remains.
