Sometimes when I think of summer I get this picture of a turquoise sea, rolling gently over a white sandy beach. Imagine the heat of the sun and the cool breeze carrying the scent of salt. This image of summer bliss is what inspired me to design this shawl, which is just right to throw on when the sun goes down and the air becomes a tad chilly. Knitted from the top-down, with only 100g of fingering weight yarn, it’s the perfect summer project.

This design features broomstick lace, so-called because it is similar to lace created with a broomstick and crochet hook. It is worked over two rows: on the first row, the yarn is wrapped twice around the needle between each knit stitch. On the next row, the wraps are dropped to create elongated stitches which are worked in groups of four.

Skills required
This pattern features knitted broomstick lace as well as various increases and decreases. Stitches used include knit, purl, k2tog tbl, kfb, M1R, M1L, yo and double yo. This pattern is suitable for the intermediate knitter.
