Sunny days or crisp mornings and evenings are perfect for walking on the beach, enjoying the view, finding starfish in tidal pools, wading in the surf, and maybe spotting a whale off shore. Knit in a luxurious yarn, this breezy shawl will soon become your favorite--take a piece of the coast with you everywhere you go.
