My new shawl pattern “When he reached the moon” is online!
When he reached the moon is a top-down triangular lace shawl featuring a series of different lace patterns to make the knitting interesting. Worked in mohair at a loose gauge, it is wonderfully warm yet light as a cloud and big enough to snuggle into when you are in need of a little bit of comfort.
It is also beautiful worked in smooth yarn, at the same or a tighter gauge.
It is inspired by one of my favourite songs, „When I reached the moon“ by Morten Harket. All my designs are accompanied by his beautiful voice, so I had to name one of them after one of his songs.
Size: Approx. 180 cm [71″] Wingspan, 90 cm [35.5“] deep (Beige/green sample)
Approx. 160 cm [63”] Wingspan, 80 cm [31.5”] deep (Turquoise/black sample)

(Gauge is not vital for this project, but it will affect the size of the FO and yardage.)
