Shoormil is an old word for the high tide mark, or the place where the sand meets the sea – perfect for this gorgeous beach themed shawl! With a wide, curved wingspan, Shoormil is an easy to wear shawl which will keep you warm and add a pop of colour to any outfit!

The pattern is fully written and charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos.

I knit these socks with Cookston Crafts Merino, Silk, Alpaca Single Ply, and if you’d like to knit them with the same yarn, Claire’s selling Shoormil Kits on her website with a choice of colours!
