I live by sea in Thailand and have been trying to get plants to grow here for a number of years now. Waves tend to splash on whatever we plant and we’ve learned over the years what will - and will not - tolerate salt!

In a tribute to this effort, and the hardy and colorful shrubs, plants, and trees that now share this space by the sea I’ve designed a triangular shawlette that’s meant to represent the leaves, flowers, and waves that I see from where I knit.

This casual shawlette is a practical accessory for you to wear in the garden and for other outdoor activity as well.

I used less than 1 full ball of Lion Brand Sock Ease fingering weight yarn for this, in a color that is Teal to me, but called Snow Cone by Lion Brand.

The instructions are written out, row by row, and you’ll need a bit of lace knitting experience for the pattern.
