If you’re new to shawl knitting, the Boat Basin Fringed Shawl by Vera Keller Hum is the perfect first shawl. Worked in simple garter stitch (knit every row) with a few regularly-placed yarnovers, its elegance and warmth transcends the seasons, and works for both day and evening wear.
What makes this piece extra special is the yarn --Tahki Yarns Alden Print or Tahki Yarns Alden. Subtle shifts in colors play against the Merino and alpaca blend, adding interest to the simple triangular shape of the shawl.
For those who want a bit more sparkle, several of our customers have added Stacy Charles Fine Yarns Crystal to the fringe. One strand held together with Alden makes the shawl shimmer. We liked these versions so much that we’ve added Crystal as an option to our kits.
