My friend received this beautiful PURL SOHO yarn in the post and was not able to use it. Returning wool orders in Ireland is expensive, so instead she handed it to me and said “I am sure you will do something with this”.
I combined the wool mix with a silk mohair for added lustre and fluffiness and designed an elongated honeycomb stitch for pointy waves which are of a variegated blue at the base and white at the top. The shawl ends are pleated to echo the sea shore and I completed it with (optional) petrol pleats along the edge to add stability. It is worked in two halves, joined with a 3-needle bind-off, and can easily be widened or narrowed. I used 1.5 Purl SOHO skeins and near to one kid silk skein of each colour.
This pattern features slipped stitches, pleating, and the joining of both halves. I have explained each step here.
I received many “wow, that’s beautiful” comments wearing it, and it is the perfect all-rounder every day accessory. I hope you will enjoy it!
