Waves crash. Gulls call. Sandpipers dodge in and out of the water’s edge, leaving behind evidence of their probings.
Use one, two, or three colors to knit this lightweight shawl inspired by the shore.
Construction begins at the top right corner and the shawl grows diagonally, making the finished shawl slightly asymmetrical. Short rows shape the border scallops and a picot bind-off adds the finishing touch.
Skills required: increasing, decreasing, backwards-loop cast-on, picking up stitches, simple lace, short rows, picot bind-off (instructions given)
Finished measurements: approximately 167.5 cm wide and 66 cm deep
Gauge: 20 stitches to 10 cm of blocked stockinette. Gauge is not critical but will affect the finished size and meterage required
Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
