Starting with the easy to wear crescent shape, this shawl adds on swooping lace and bountiful beads that come together in an ode to the ocean. The inspiration behind this watery theme is the beautifully dyed sock blank Sea Garden from Gale’s Art.

By keeping the proper balance of lace to solid knitting the fun speckles created by Gale’s unique dying technique have room to show off. The gradient effect stripes in waves further reinforcing the theme.

The shawl calls for two colors of beads, but of course you can use as many, few, or none as suits your desires. The beads are applied with a crochet hook and the sample uses the following amount of size 6/0 beads:
Color A ~ 275, Color B ~ 740

The pattern is both fully written out and also has charts for the majority of the lace.
