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 shaped shawl 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 sample shawl was worked in 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.
Safe Harbour is perfect for showcasing a semi-solid colourway, and is the perfect pattern to compliment any of the yarns in the Steni Vala 'Shades of...' range. These yarns are a mix of 50% Silk and 50% merino, and have been hand-dyed using a close blend of colours to create a variance of tones throughout the skein.
