While waiting for summer...

Does Glam Shell, this shell shawl by Maris Hernandez,  still needs introduction? A lovely project smelling the seaspray to knit and help you wait for the beach!

 

Why choosing Glam Shells?

Glam Shells has been a real success since it was published on Ravelry. Knitted more than 600 times, this pattern by Marisa Hernandez seems to be travelling around the world, from needles to needles... What accounts for its success?

Some may say that the pattern is successful because it is free... It may help but above all, this pattern seems to appeal to knitters because of the contrast between its simple lace pattern in its main part and the uncommun shell design in its lower part. The border being worked directly after the the main part, no stitches are picked up or worked the other way. Also the pattern is well written and detailed: Marisa indicates the exact number of stitches per row, which never fails to be useful! Eventually, the shawl can be made in different yarn weight which will look quite different in the end. I wouldn't be suprised if you knitted it twice: an airy version in light fingering and a heavier version in a DK yarn. Please take a look at the various photos on Ravelry, they are inspiring indeed.

Glam Shell is certainly not a first try for Marisa. She offered us this design but her galery features many other interesting patterns that you should take a look at.

The beige version shown here was knitted by Hélène, a regular customer at PurPle Laines. Hélène was kind enough to lend me her photo. Her shawl was made in Fonty Bohème, a summer blend of linen and cotton. You will see more photos on Hélène's blog.

 

What do you need to knit Glam Shells?

-About 380m of fingering yarn, for a light version, such as PurPle Fil de soie ( 80g held double) or  PurPle Alpaca (110 g). For a heavier version, you can make it with 4 balls of  Bohème by Fonty (19 colours) , as Hélène did , or in Coast by Holst Garn (28 colours) held double (110 g). Mind you, the quantities given here are those mentionned in the pattern but most knitters seem to use more yarn, about 410 -450 m, add some margin not to run out of yarn.

- A pair of 4 and 4.5 mm needles (or one circular needle, it will be more comfortable)

- Stitch markers

- T-pins or blocking wires

- one tapestry needle

- Marisa's free pattern that you can download from Ravelry

 

Thank you Marisa for the pattern and for having let me write about this shawl, thanks Helène for the photo and happy knitting everyone!
