Brooklyn Tweed

Rock Island


One of Brooklyn Tweed’s original laceweight patterns, Rock Island is reinvented in their newest yarn, Vale. Worked from the outside in, starting with a delicate lace edging knit as a single strip of fabric, this light-as-air triangle shawl uses a heavier gauge needle, making this knitting fly by! Brooklyn Tweed considers Rock Island a level 4 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
