Shimmering Sea Shawl5:29 PM
Quince & co shawl week is here, and I'm happy to share my contribution to the collection: Shimmering Sea Shawl in Piper. This shawl gets its inspiration from the ever-changing colors of the sea and sunshine reflecting on the waves. Working with two strands of Piper and changing colors one strand at a time mimics the flickering of the sea and the subtlety of the sea changing its colour. Solid color stripes are the rays of sunlight, worked with short rows that slightly tilt the asymmetrical triangle shape of the shawl.
Pattern: Shimmering Sea Shawl
Yarn: Piper by Quince & co in colorways Longhorn, Guadalupe and Coldspring, 2 skeins each
Needles: US 9 / 5.5 mm
Piper is a lovely yarn to work with: 50 % superfine Texas merino, 50 % super kid Texas mohair. It's incredibly soft and easy to knit. This was my first project using Piper, and I have already stashed more for my next project!
You can purchase Shimmering sea shawl pattern as an individual pattern through Ravelry or Quince & co, or you can get the whole shawl week collection of five patterns with a downloadable lookbook. The collection includes shawls by Melanie Berg, Leila Raabe, Paulina Popiolek, Leah B. Thibault, and Katrine Birkenwasser.
