The Cocktails by the Sea Shawl is designed for the Midsummer Countdown Calendar hosted by Chefwol with the same theme. The result is a beautiful summer shawl you can wear on one of those long summer nights, or to keep you covered from too much sunlight.

This pattern will be available in DUTCH.

This shawl is made using a (semi-)solid commercial yarn throughout. Participants of the Midsummer Countdown Calendar recieved handdyed yarn, dyed in colors representing cocktails, together with the Green-blue Main Color.

  • Scheepjes Metropolis ‘022 Passay’, 2 balls of 50gr, are used for the sample. Alternatives are any fingering weight hand dyed or commercial yarn.
  • Scheepjes Metropolis, 21 balls of 10 gr in different colors are used as contrast colors for the sample. Alternatives are any fingering weight hand dyed or commercial yarn.
