Nixe is a wonderful summer accessory which is worked flat from the upper right tip towards the left edge.
The simple, repetitive stitch pattern evokes the sun-dappled scales of mermaids playing just below the surface of the sea. Therefore, Nixe, the German word for mermaid, seemed the perfect name for this wonderful shawl which was inspired by these mythical creatures.
Nixe also showcases two new Pascuali Balayage colourways, a soft off-white and a hand-dyed turquoise flecked with jewel tones. Balayage is a blend of delicate baby alpaca and fine merino wool; a yarn that is soft and gentle on the skin.

As an alternative to Balayage, you can knit this shawl with our hand dyed Merino Baby Sport yarn available HERE.
