A One Skein Jewel

In the quiet hours, under moon’s gentle gaze, Amren whispers. A single skein of silver dreams, delicate as morning’s first light. Not just a shawl, but a jewel to grace your presence.

A simple and delicate shawl designed to use a special skein of luxurious yarn.
Amren is worked in sections, from tip to tip alternating bands of easy lace, garter stitch and small short row wedges.

Wingspan: 62” 155 cm.
Depth at deepest point: 20¾“ 52 cm.

I used a single skein of yarn with a relatively long meterage, and I used EVERY SINGLE YARD. If you choose a skein of yarn that has less yardage than the recommended one, or if you normally use more yarn than what patterns call for, you may bind off sooner, or start the final lace section when you have 10 grams left. If you do so, you might need to adjust your stitch count so that it works with the lace pattern: a multiple of 6 + 5.

1 skein of Light Fe by Sägen (70% Baby Alpaca / 20% Silk / 10% Cashmere / 440 yd 400 m) or approx. 440 yards 400m of fingering weight yarn.
The sample was made using color Ulven.
Needles: US 5 3.75 mm needles.
Other notions: Tapestry needle, blocking pins or wires.

20 sts and 33 rows to 4” 10 cm in garter st on US 5 3.75 mm needles after blocking and stretching.
Before measuring, make sure your swatch goes through the same blocking and pinning process as your shawl will.
