The Saudades Shawl is a collaboration with Miss Babs Yarns and calls for only one skein of their delicious Big Silk base. It is a worsted weight crescent shaped shawl, worked in a squishy garter stitch body and with a cabled edge worked sideways. Because of the yarn weight it calls for, this piece grows very fast making it perfect for gift knitting or an (almost) immediate ‘finished object’ satisfaction.
Saudade is a Portuguese word that has no known translation to any other language. It is used to describe a mix of happy and sad feelings of melancholy and nostalgia when one is longing for someone or something they love. Saudades is the sadness that comes from knowing that that moment or person is gone and is also the happiness to have lived and experienced it, and now have beautiful memories of it. It is also referred to as “the love that remains”.
