The stripes of the crescent-shaped Tobermory Shawl and easy lace and eyelets, hint at the promise of riches beneath the waves.

Description

The Tobermory Shawl is named after an impossibly beautiful seaside town on the Isle of Mull in Scotland, where brightly painted buildings sparkle against the dark blue bay. Legend has it that a Spanish galleon laden with gold lies at the bottom of that bay, lost in the 16th Century and never recovered.

The stripes of the crescent shaped Tobermory Shawl hint at the promise of riches beneath the waves. Its easy lace and eyelets were planned to thoughtfully showcase two colours of the gorgeous Road to China Light yarn: lustrous, subtly tonal, and always treasured.
