Hello there, my fearless knitting friends! I’ve just opened preorders for my brand new Sea Glass Memories Shawl pattern, and a fun Knit Along is just around the corner.
Imagine the tranquil shores, the gentle rhythm of waves, and the frosted treasures bestowed by the sea. The Sea Glass Memories Shawl captures this ethereal beauty, and what’s more, I’m teaming up with indie dyer Mindy Kingery of Henlia Handmade for a Knit Along adventure that we will surf together.
Mindy has created a collection of beautiful naturally dyed sea glass-inspired yarn to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Henlia Handmade, and preorders officially open today!
Have plenty of yarn in your stash? You’re welcome to join us for the KAL and use your own yarn. Make sure to sign up for the Knit Along emails to receive the links to our Zoom Knit Nights and stay in the loop.
Preorder the pattern on Ravelry today with code seaglasskal. The full pattern will be available by September 14th:
🧶 About the Shawl:
This asymmetrical shawl starts out with just a few stitches and is the perfect one-skein wonder project for a gorgeous solid, tonal, or very gently variegated skein of fingering weight yarn. Want a larger shawl? Just keep knitting! This shawl is simple to adjust for a larger size by continuing on with additional repeats.
The lace is simple to follow, and the only stitches used are knits, purls, yarn overs, k2tog, ssk, and m1l. The pattern is fully written and the repeat is charted, so you can take your pick to work from! And a Stitch Count Table is included to help keep you on track.
✨ About our Inspiration:
The Sea Glass Memories Shawl is inspired by those remnants of discarded glass objects turned into enchanting treasures that grace our shores. Worn and polished over time by the ocean’s caress, they radiate a mesmerizing frosty glow and become spectacular gifts from Mother Nature and her coastal waters.
The elegant lace stitches mirror the magic of sea glass, capturing light in a manner reminiscent of the memories kept in glass jars on windowsills.
