Last week I talked about my Kohatu shawl from the Rowan brochure Simple Shapes Fine Art & Fine Lace.

Today I want to show you my Merkur from this brochure.

It is also an easy knit and is creating a lovely garter stitch shawl with a lace edging.

This shawl is knitted sideways and the slightly curved shape is created with increases and decreases within the garter stitch section.

The lace edging is knitted with the main garter stitch section, so no sewing or knitting on is necessary.

Sarah Hatton designed Merkur in the new green shade Marten 004 of Rowan Fine Art. I used 1 skein of shade Hornbeam 311 from my stash.

Here is the result:
