Slow down with Underwater shawl

Underwater shawl pattern from Woolenberry.

The last few weeks of the year always feel like a race to the finish line. I wanted to design a deliciously simple shawl to ground us during this busy time.

Underwater is a minimal and cosy triangle shawl with diagonally moving eyelet bands on stockinette stitch.

It’s soothing and comforting to knit. Perfect for slowing down with your knitting and a good audiobook.

You work this shawl with three colours of sport-weight yarn.

I used De Rerum Natura Ulysse (100% merino; 185 m / 202 yds per 50 g) in colours Quartz, Poivre et Sel and Granit.

But Underwater would look great in a single colour, too. You’ll need about 629 m / 688 yds of sport-weight yarn in total.

Don’t like purling? You could also work this shawl in garter stitch.
