The perfect light layer knit for summer

Tranquil – Bias rectangle scarf knitting pattern with simple lace and garter stitch.

There’s so much to love about big, cosy shawls—they’re like comfort food for our shoulders, right?

But there are days when you don’t want the full buffet.

Maybe it’s too warm, or you’re craving for something lighter that doesn’t weigh you down.

Sometimes, what you really need is a lightweight, easy piece that’s just enough to add some flair without making you feel like you’re wrapped in a woollen blanket all day.

It’s like adding a little black dress to your wardrobe full of chunky sweaters.

That’s exactly what the Tranquil scarf pattern is all about.

This lovely little wrap feels like a hug from a cloud. When you want a barely-there piece that doesn’t weigh you down, Tranquil is your go-to accessory.

Tranquil is a lightweight rectangular scarf knitting pattern that looks more complex than it is.

You work Tranquil on the bias, creating a fun parallelogram shape with tapered ends. The all-over diamond lace is relaxing yet entertaining to knit. With no purling!

You’ll need about 390 m / 427 yds of lace or light-fingering weight yarn.

I knitted this sample shawl with Isager Spinni (100% wool; 300 m / 328 yds per 50 g), which is a single-ply yarn with a bit of a rustic feel. It holds its shape well and blocks like a dream.

The best bits in a nutshell:

  • Simple and clear instructions, no guesswork needed.
  • Lightweight warmth without the bulk.
  • Both written and charted instructions.
  • Garter stitch and simple yet stunning lace. And no purling!
  • Prefer your wraps bigger? The pattern includes notes on how to modify the width and length.

Tranquil is a calm and peaceful wrap that will soothe your soul. It’s a relaxing knit with a simple yet striking lace pattern that you’ll have memorised after a few repeats.
