The Black Sands Shawl is a 3-colour shawl that uses fun texture, simple lace, slip stitch and colourwork motifs to play with 3 skeins of DK-weight yarn.
This shawl is knit up in the gorgeous Prosper Yarn Bach DK, a linen merino blend yarn perfect for wrapping around yourself on a warm windy summer’s day at the beach.
The ‘Black Sand’ comes from the gorgeous iron-rich black sand beaches abundant on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand where I live.
