Imagine wrapping yourself in a shawl so light and airy that it feels like a gentle hug from a cloud. Gossamer is a crescent-shaped shawl with garter stitch and delicate lace. And the best part? You only need one skein of fingering-weight yarn.

As you knit, watch the lace stripes emerge, adding a dash of intrigue to the smooth garter sea. The grand finale is the wide lace border, creating an edge that commands attention yet slips off the needles effortlessly. Topped with a playful picot bind-off, it’s knitting satisfaction at its finest. Despite its intricate appearance, Gossamer is a quick knit.

Whether you’re on your usual commute, nestled in your favourite knitting nook, or just need a companion for your latest binge-watch, Gossamer promises to be a knitting flirtation that might just bloom into a full-blown love affair.
