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.
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.
This pattern was designed to showcase a Steni Vala 'Shades of...' colourway. This series of tonal colourways combine 2-3 different shades of colour that subtly blend together and give a beautiful depth and richness to your stitches.
