Silverfall Shawl, designed by Inese Sang, is inspired by rich Latvian folklore, the songs and folk poems where rain is often referred to as falling silver from the sky or silver rain, especially spring and summer time rain - shimmering in sunlight, covering meadows in a gentle glow and branches of birch trees in flickering sparks caught reflecting off the rain soaked leaves.
We do love a great wrap for Fall and Winter, and Silverfall captures all the glam of a great shawl project. It's asymmetrical and worked sideways from tip to its widest point featuring a simple body with contrasting color purl rows and a densely textured raindrop-like panel. The shawl is bound off using a knitted-on edge with tiny suspended bobbles. You'll learn and practice each of the main skills in this project after a thorough review of the pattern including i-cord edge, carrying yarn, twisted stitches, knitted-on bobble edge bind off.

We're recommending our newest yarn, Perennial, for this project - 497 yards of fingering awesome that's 60% superwash Merino, 25% Suri alpaca, 15% nylon - which means super soft with a pretty halo. Right?! Perfect for this beautiful shawl/wrap!
