Sonder Shawl - a knitting pattern

On Sale
Added to cart
sonder, n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.
~ from the dictionary of obscure sorrows.

In German it means “special”, just like the yarn I’ve worked with.

This simple but stylish shawl is engaging and rhythmic to knit, and easy and fun to wear. The entire body is worked in garter stitch with reversible cables. Each cable is introduced using the same chart, but the crosses will be staggered; the same Garter column is repeated between the cable columns.

One: approx. 175cm/69” wide and 58 cm/22.75” long at center spine.

2 skeins of Tibetan Singles by Martin’s Lab (65% merino; 20% Alpaca, 15% Yak; 480m/525y per 120g). Shown in colorway: Thicket.

3.25 mm/US #3 circular needle (80 cm/32” long).

Cable needle, markers, tapestry needle for weaving.

26 sts and 36 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.
