This sweeping, wedge-shaped shawl has it all—delicious garter stitch texture, interesting linework, beautiful drape, and frothy (but simple) openwork that glows with light. Worked in addictive short-row repeats that recreate the pattern of waves lapping on sand, this is a soothing project that makes a perfect summer travel companion. Use one solid or natural heathered yarn and one gradient colorway to achieve an effect similar to the sample pictured here or mix a variegated yarn with a solid for an overall pattern.
Shawl is shown knit in Bare Naked Wools Jacob Fingering yarn, color medium gray and Apple Tree Knits Plush Fingering, color Perfect Picnic Sky* (hand-dyed exclusively for the 2018 Pairings Club)
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
