Having a great easy-to-wear shawl is essential to me. Something I don’t have to fuss over, that suits me and keeps me warm – both indoors and outside. It’s my everyday go-to shawl.

The Ferry Lights Shawl is a tribute to my hometown of Nyborg – an old Danish harbor town that used to be busy with ferries and travellers passing through. I designed the eyelet pattern to look like the string lights on the retired ferry, Broen (The Bridge), that is now proudly anchored in a special place in our harbor, reminding us of simpler times.

I’m really pleased with the fun construction of this shawl and I hope you’ll thoroughly enjoy knitting and wearing it.

The Ferry Lights Shawl has a special and simple construction that lends itself perfectly for customization. Make it as big and colorful as you like!

  • Alternatively, you can use a 4 mm / US 6 circular needle for a slightly bigger shawl with looser fabric.
  • 4 stitch markers
  • Optional extra stitch marker to mark the right side

Around 24 stitches = 10 cm / 4 inches in garter stitch.

Getting exact guage is not totally crucial for the Ferry Lights Shawl but you want to be somewhere close to ensure enough width of the shawl to get a good wrap.
