Trillick is a fitted cowl, worked top-down and in the round. It is shaped to fit over the shoulders using a series of increases. Short row shaping adds an asymmetric triangular wedge, suggestive of a triangular shawl. The cowl features textured stitches, and a garter stitch lace edging, loosely inspired by prehistoric gold artefacts from the National Museum of Ireland.
The sample is knit using a single ball of Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal; the pattern uses one 400 metre skein of fingering or sock weight yarn.
The pattern includes written and charted instructions for the lace, and has been test knitted.*

*once again, I am enormously grateful to text knitting volunteers. Their feedback has been hugely informative, and an extremely valuable learning experience.
