A rhythmically relaxing, visually interesting shawl. This is the downloadable pattern.

“Release the Hounds” is so called because of the simple fact that it’s made in the Houndstooth stitch. It must be said in the voice of Mr Burns from the Simpsons.

This written pattern includes a chart, and table for colour changes & stitch count.

-This pattern is available in both UK & US terms
