Pattern Description:

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.


Gauge is not critical in this design. For the sample shawl measured after blocking:
14 sts / 21 rows = 10 cm (4 inches) over stockinette

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Wingspan of 125 cm (49 inches) and 56 cm (22 1/2 inches) along the spine of the shawl, measured after blocking. This shawlette can easily be made larger by using heavier yarn and / or working more stockinette and lace sections. This will of course increase the amount of yarn needed.


  • In the sample shawl hand dyed sock yarn by "Atelier Kleurrijk Vilt" was used [75% wool, 25% polyamide; 333 m (364 yds) / 100 g skein]. Substitute any fingering weight yarn for a similar result.

You Will Also Need:

  • Stitch markers
  • Yarn needle
  • A circular needle size 4 mm (US #6), 80 cm (32 inch) long was used for the sample shawl.

Suggested yarn:

350 meters of Fingering weight

Having a background in Industrial Design Engineering, you can say that I always had a knack for design. When I taught myself to knit and discovered the possibilities of sticks & twine, the gates for ideas to translate into knitted fabric were opened.

Everything that catches my attention can be the source of a new design idea, being it strong lines and shapes or a distinct lace pattern. ...
