New one skein wonder Solar is here

Solar shawl pattern from Woolenberry.

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.

I used one skein of Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20 (70% merino wool, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon; 366 m / 400 yds per 100 g) in colour Bumble Bee.

The yarn was a gift from a Ravelry friend, and it’s been sitting in my stash for a long, long time.

I’ve seen so many knitters use this yarn for my shawl patterns over the years, and I can’t believe I didn’t cast on with it sooner. I guess it was waiting for this pattern!

I bet you also have a perfect skein already in your stash.

Solid and semi-solid yarns work best for this shawl, but the choice is yours.

You’ll need about 355 m / 388 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.

I also included instructions for making the shawl bigger if you want to turn it into a two skein project or have a skein with more yardage.

P.S. When you’ve picked your yarn, share your project on Instagram with #woolenberry. I love seeing your knits!
