Solar is a fun and quick-to-knit one skein wonder.
You work this crescent-shaped shawl alternating garter stitch with stockinette ridges and beautiful yet simple lace. Picot bind-off adds delicate detail to the border.
Solid and semi-solid yarns work best for this shawl, but the choice is yours. I bet you already have a perfect skein in your stash!
One skein of Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20 (70% merino wool, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon; 366 m / 400 yds per 100 g). Shown in colour Bumble Bee.
Or approximately 355 m / 388 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.
Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Or size that gives you pattern gauge.
This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using an 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
20 stitches and 40 rows = 10 cm / 4 inches in garter stitch, before blocking
kfb: knit to front and back loop of the same stitch
yo: yarn over
k2tog: knit 2 stitches together
sl1k2togpsso: slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 2 stitches together, pass the slipped stitch over
165 cm / 65 in (width) x 56 cm / 22 in (depth)
