At the end of last year I participated in Nautical Knitting Cruise. One of my tasks as a teacher was to create a shawl that was easy enough to knit on when you leave the classroom, fun to make and pretty. I was offered two new colors created especially for that shawl: Carribean Blue (which seriously looks like the Carribean waters!) and a speckled contrast named Jelly Fish.
I loved every stitch, the fun constuction which looks like an arrowlike shawl but in fact is not, and the colorplay created by the yarns.
Today I have the pleasure to release the pattern for you. Grab two contrasting skeins, cast on and watch the fun texture be born <3
One: approx. 170cm/67” wide and 65 cm/25.5” long at center spine.
2 skeins of Bouncy Merino by Martin’s Lab (100% high twist merino; 366m/399y per 100g). Shown in colorways: Jelly Fish CC1, Caribbean Dreams CC2.
4.0 mm/US #6 circular needle (80 cm/32” long).
1 stitch marker, tapestry needle for weaving.
18 sts and 44 rows = 10 cm/4” in Garter st measured flat after wet blocking.
The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
