The Atlantic Ocean Cowl is inspired by the waves and the way light hits the seawater.

This pattern uses drop stitch lace to create a wavy light fabric, perfect to wear as a shoulder warmer on a chilly summer evening on the beach. The Dyers at Nooch Fiber were kind enough to create a special colorway for this pattern called O Trem Azul. It is a perfect deep blue with aqua and indigo highlights to mimic the look of the ocean water.

This pattern contains charts.
