Pattern Release: Isis Shawl

The next pattern I'm releasing from the Legendary Knits v3 collection is the Isis Shawl.

I dyed up a new colorway "Purple Lotus" on the new Laysa Sock (which is a blend of SW merino, yak and silk that has a gorgeous drape!), and used 2 skeins to complete this shawl.  (You'll need between 750-775 yards of a fingering weight yarn for this.)

Lots of pretty details and a yummy raspberry color - this is one of my favorites from the collection!
