Sommelier is an airy crescent shaped shawl with deliciously simple elements. It’s knitted with sport weight yarn in easy-to-memorize patterns. Combining garter stitch, eyelets and mesh lace, this modern shawl is relaxing to knit and looks beautiful wrapped around your neck.

Beginning from the neck with a garter tab cast on, Sommelier is worked with increases on both edges for a deep crescent shape. Eyelets created by yarn overs on all sides of the shawl make blocking a breeze, as the blocking wires are simple and quick to insert along the eyelet holes.

Oodles of yarn overs bring airiness to the shawl and ensure that even a modest amount of yarn can go a long way. For those lonely single skeins and other small yarn amounts in your stash, Sommelier is the perfect choice.


2 balls of De Rerum Natura Ulysse (100% merino; 185 m / 202 yds per 50 g). Shown in colourway Caramel.

Or approximately 315 m / 344 yds of similar sport weight yarn.


Size 4,5 mm / US 7 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.
