I Love Eri's description below in Eri's words of where the inspiration for this this gorgeous Samon shawl pattern came from. Eri writes ;
"Samon means in Japanese ʻsand ripples’.I made a pattern based on the story of Mongolia and Nepal told by Nomadnoos.The first story was the desert.
The wind blows over the desert, leaving a pattern.And the camels walking there.That image came to me.
I wanted to express the sand pattern on a shawl, so I decided to make this shawl.The blue line is an oasis that appears in the desert.
This camel thread was a neat thread.It is a thread that has just the right softness and crisp beauty."
Samon is a pi circle shawl knitted in one piece from the centre to the outer edge. The design exists in 1 unique size but you can stop knitting whenever you want!
Choose the colour/s you like most from the Nomad noos Dry Desert Camel range and happy knitting!
