This pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry.

Nixe is the German word for mermaid, and it seemed the perfect name for a shawl where the simple, repetitive stitch pattern evokes the sun-dappled scales of mermaids playing just below the surface of the sea.

I also love the way it showcases two new Pascuali Balayage colorways, a soft off-white and a hand-dyed turquoise flecked with jewel tones.

A wonderful accessory for the seaside!


Pascuali Filati Naturali Balayage

  • 3 balls in Ica, 150 g / 575 yds [525 m] used for sample
  • 2 balls in Paracas, 100 g / 383 yds [350 m] used for sample

Note: Both colors have almost been completely used up. You can add repeats if you have more yarn left, or you can leave out some if you run out. This pattern is very easy to adapt to your given yardage.
