The Op Art Shawl features a play the traditional Old Shale Lace pattern, updated to create a shawl with a more modern construction and feel. The lace pattern distorts the stripes in a way that is reminiscent of the work of Bridget Riley, and so the name was born.

We recommend using one of our DK yarns such as Gotland DK with this pattern. You may wish to buy the Op Art Shawl Project Kit which includes the pattern some of our Gotland DK wool in your chosen shade.

Our Samite Silk Blend DK, Folklore DK or Shetland DK wool ranges provide you with more options to make this stunning shawl. You will need 2 x 100g skeins plus 1 x 100g contrasting skein if you prefer to purchase the wool and the pattern separately, rather than as a project kit.
