Simmer Blink shawl
A “simmer blink” is a momentary glimpse of sunshine on a dark, cloudy day. This shawl offers more than just a blink of brightness, but it does capture the way green fields and golden sunshine glow against iron grey skies.
Worked from a starting point in mostly garter stitch, with just a few eyelet bands and a simple lace edging knitted as you go, this is constructed as an asymmetric triangle but ends up as a crescent. (Notes are provided on how to keep the shape more triangular – and longer – if you prefer.) It’s a simple but satisfying project, perfect for knitting in public, and a very wearable shawl.
The shawl measures 200cm / 79 inches along the top edge, and 43 cm / 17 inches across at the widest point.
It’s designed to show off a five-mini-skein set plus one solid skein but would also work well in two solids, two gradient yarns, or with more mini-skeins – notes are included on possible adaptations.
