We could be the talk of the town tonight. Carry home your shoes in the morning light. Or we could just stay here a while. Wrapped up in the quiet life.
Partially inspired by the yarn and partially inspired by the song, The Quiet Life by Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson, Quiet Life is new today. Knitted mostly in stockinette stitch, the shawl has a simple cable panel down the center that flows into a cabled edge. Quiet Life is worked from the top down like a standard top down triangular shawl; however, the center cable panel changes the shape of the shawl to a rounded triangle/half-circle.
Instructions to work the cables are given in the pattern. The pattern includes both fully written and charted instructions. The pattern has been professionally tech edited by Katherine Vaughan and has been test knit.
