Samon by Eri Shimizu Yarn Kit


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!
