The garden is an alluring space by day, but in the evening, the setting can be simply magical. With fairy lights strung through the trees, the garden transforms into something special. It becomes a gathering place where threads of friendship are interwoven, where secrets are shared, where laughter is pure.
This asymmetric shawl is perfect for long summer evenings in the garden. Knitted in a silk and merino blend, the fabric is lovely and soft, with just the right amount of drape. Shimmering beads dance across chevron lace like lights twinkling through the branches. So string up those lights, call up some friends, put on some music, light the fire pit and let the conversation and laughter flow, it’s what summer nights were made for.
The intermediate knitter will enjoy this one-skein project. Choose a smooth yarn in a solid or semi-solid colour to highlight the pattern. The sample shawl was worked in Under the Olive Tree Knits Steni Vala 4 ply yarn, a lustrous and velvety blend of merino and silk.
