About Soliloquy

Soliloquy is a crescent shaped shawl featuring alternating panels of garter stitch, eyelets and lace which make for a simple, yet engaging knit. It’s knit from The Fibre Co.’s Canopy Fingering in the colourway Love in a Mist, that perfect shade of seaside summertime blue.

Inspired by the North West coastal landscapes of my childhood with their wild waves and rocky shores, Soliloquy is designed to be a fun, light and breezy knit, both to make and to wear. The lace is easy to memorize but interesting to knit and the picot edging adds a little something sweet to finish off. Perfect for an early morning beach
walk or an evening on the dock, Soliloquy adds that extra bit of warmth to lighthearted summer days or to those transitional between-season times when an extra layer comes in handy.
