reminiscence of summers, long walks on the beach, fields in bloom, the blue ocean, the green fields…

I designed this shawl for the KAL on the Fantasy Fiber Arts / Knitting Cruise to the Bahamas in 2013.

The shawl is worked top-down in lace pattern, interrupted by garter bands worked across from side to side and edged by my new favorite: a garter stitch i-cord.

Make the solid version or the two colored version or both.
It’s a fast knit, but it’s never boring.
