SAVOR SHAWL

Diamonds, gingham checks, leaves are such commonly seen motifs on so many lovingly decorated and lived-in homes. No matter where life takes you in its long mysterious journeys, I bet we all have some remains of these memories about a home that we savor every now and then.

Savor is a DK weight pattern that combines all these motifs in an interesting way, translating them into a knittable wearable shawl for your wardrobe.

The pleasant weight and warmth of the shawl makes it suitable for chilly evenings. On the other hand, the lace and decorative details gives you a shawl you can throw over a plain outfit and dress it up instantly.

Savor was originally released as a part of Little Skein’s Beatrix Box series June 2021 Edition. 

Savor is knit from tip to tip as an asymmetric triangle by casting on a few stitches and increasing along one side. It comes to you in two sizes with diamond lace all over the body while the border combines geometric lace, textured leaf motifs in an interesting way. It also has a couple of fun picot edging options to play with.
