Chasing Waves is a crescent-shaped shawl that is knitted from the top down. There are directions for optional beading in the border.

Make a small one-skein shawl, ideal for keeping out a cool sea breeze, or a larger two-skein shawl, for those clear nights that turn cold once the sun has gone down. This is a simple pattern that is easily adapted to accommodate varying amounts of yarn.

This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners and up.

Stitches used include ssk, k2tog, yo, m1, KYOK
