Quite easy to knit, especially if you already know a bit about short rows, I can even say that it’s actually way too easy for me… it felt like it took me forever to knit this project, although I knitted it in DK yarn.
For this project, I’ve chosen 3 colors in DK, and needles n° 5mm.
The yarn I used is hand-dyed, and available in this crazy yarnporn shop online :
“Sécheresse”, “Napoli”, and “Sicile” are the color names 🙂
Quicksilver pattern is easy and repeats itself : stockinette stitch here, yarn over there, short rows here switch colors there, and here we go, you end up with a shawl on your shoulders 🙂
Quicksilver shawl is totally the kind of project you can take with you at a knit night, to stitch and bitch with your friends 🙂 Although indeed, if you knit it with DK yarn, it will pretty soon be wayyyyy too big to fit in your purse ! 🙂 It’s a big big shawl !
So here it is, and you should start knitting one too, because that Quicksilver from Mélanie Berg is an easy and safe project to knit for winter 🙂
