My sister’s birthday is coming up at the end of March and she asked me if I could knit her a summer shawl. I searched for silk or linen yarn for this project and found this beautiful Handmaiden Fine Yarn Sea Silk that I thought would be perfect for summer. My sister loved the yarn and colorway "Dandelion" had the colors that she wanted. My sister loves modern clean lines and bold accessories. I just had to come up with something beautiful that she will like :-))
This particular colorway has few colors in it and it is always a concern when choosing a pattern for such variegated yarn. I though about the design for a while and remembered an idea for a shawl I had after I designed my "Lemon Drops" shawl. The idea was to try to knit a shawl using a stitch pattern I designed for the border of "Lemon Drops". I thought this would be perfect project to try this idea on. I wanted an airy and lacy summer shawl and I love how it all beautifully came together in this design I called "Silhouette". I choose the name "Silhouette" because the lace stitch reminds me of leaves silhouettes.
I hope my sister will love and enjoy this shawl :-)))
The shawl is currently being test knitted and will be available on Ravelry and my blog after that. Until then, you can find this project and more details on the shawl on Ravelry.
