For many of us, knitting has become more than a hobby, but it can also be a place of comfort. In a chaotic world, we turn to our trusty yarn and needles for a few moments of calm. We can’t control everything in the world but we can at least be in control of our knitting.
Safe Harbour is a top-down crescent that begins with a long stretch of relaxing stockinette. As you near the shawl’s edge, waves of zigzag lace ripple along the shore. A crooked jetty of stockinette stands firm amidst the lace, protecting the shallows from the uncertain waters of the deeper lace beyond. However choppy your seas, let knitting be your safe harbour.
The shawl uses 1 skein of 100g 4ply,sock or fingering weight yarn. The sample shawl was worked in Under the Olive Tree Knits Steni Vala 4ply yarn - a lustrous and velvety blend of merino and silk, offering a soft, warm hug when you need it most. While this might be considered an intermediate-level pattern, it is a good one for the adventurous beginner looking to dip a toe into lacework.
