Silver River Shawl


Published in The Shawl Society 5


The Silver River Shawl is a nod to the inspiration we’ve always drawn from the stars. This short row crescent shawl is knit in two colours, with an interesting construction and a lighthearted attitude. Wedges of garter stitch interspersed with arcing sections of star stitch give the Silver River Shawl a sense of movement and a modern romantic aesthetic.

Out here, far from the city, the stars will steal your breath. They are the only light, aside from the occasional firefly. On a clear night like this, the Milky Way is painted across the sky, a silver river of fire. Unimaginable lengths of time and space. Unbelievable beauty. It is our galaxy, our home, and yet nothing could seem more distant. Lying in the grass, looking up, the earth solid and still at your back, for an instant you have the sensation of flying towards the sky. A sudden expansion. A lifted heart. A whole new sense of scale.
