Relaxing garter stitch and playful eyelet stripes make Currant Jam a perfect summer knit. It’s familiar and easy to make, but has a refreshing twist, just like currant jam. This shawl has an asymmetric triangle shape and is knit on the bias, so the rows are never very long.

As delightful as its sugary counterpart, Currant Jam is a real treat. Easy to knit and easy to wear. You need just one skein of fingering weight yarn.

Currant Jam is part of the Garden Delights collection. The other shawls are Cherry Cake and Rhubarb Pie.
