Hatteras Lace Shrug
Update Nov. 2009: I have put up a free bodice modification as shown in the second and third picture here.
Description: Cape Hatteras is a wild spot on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, home of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. At the point of Cape Hatteras, large currents from the north and from the south collide and send a spray of water high into the air. The seas and waterways around Hatteras are known as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” because so many ships wrecked there over the past five centuries. The shallow waters that surround Hatteras and endanger ships are called the Diamond Shoals.
This lace pattern of this shrug is a tribute to Cape Hatteras--the fishnet lace honoring the fishermen who work there, the diamond lace pattern evoking the diamond shoals, and the Hatteras Spray panel in the center recreating the collision of the Labrador and Florida currents.
