With contrasting stripes of color that expand and contract, this shawl mirrors the path of water as the tides ebb.

Small garter stitch stripes using five contrast colors alternate with stockinette parts in a neutral background color. The contrast colors are used in the same color sequence in each section but the stockinette stripes become smaller with each repeat worked, so that the colorful garter stitch stripes become more prominent with each section worked The shawl is knit from the top down.
