Having grown up in the countryside, I enjoy the quiet stillness of nature. Whenever I find myself in a new place, I like to take a walk and immerse myself in the surroundings, enjoying the fresh air and birdsong and taking in the beautiful scenery that nature has to offer.

Quietude is a shawl for those contemplative walks. Shaped with three panels, stockinette side panels highlight a centre of diamond lace which grows like a mountain coming into view on the horizon. A single bead at the bottom of each lace motif accentuates the border colour, like shiny pebbles dotted along the path. A classic ribbed border in a contrasting yarn adds a clear road to the end of your shawl. A solid colour for the body of the shawl is best, but the border can stand up to variegated yarns.

The border uses 1.75oz / 50g or 218yds / 200m of yarn. If you use a full skein for this section, you can keep hold of the remainder as there will be a Quitetude cowl coming very soon, which has been designed to use the rest of your skein.
