Pentala was inspired by water. The soft lapping of waves, the intricate patterns tiny streams make. The eternal, natural movement of water. Finland is the land of a thousand lakes and we have a coastline on the Baltic Sea and the Arctic Ocean. Water is a natural part of life here. And ever so inspiring.

Transport yourself to a sandy shore with this shawl where relaxing garter stitch meets delicate lace. Pentala is a lightweight but fairly sized wrap, where the rows are never too long as it’s knit on the bias.

Pentala is available as a PDF download on Ravelry or as a kit from The Woven.
