A knit/lab special! A large innovative lace pattern inspired by the rippling surface of the sea.

In addition to the original 2013 version, the pdf includes a new 2016 version with a more decorative border.

MagicWaves is also available as part of the knit/lab Waves volume 2 eBook.

The charts are quite big due to the asymmetric repeat of the wave motif, but the lace stitches are very easy.

The shape of the finished piece is almost a rectangle - the garter stitch short ends are at a slight angle.

The original sample (top picture) was knit on 4mm/US6 needles with 75g/315m/350yds of Zauberball Sock yarn, Schokocreme/Crème of Chocolat 1993 colorway.
Dimensions: approximately 21in/53.5cm square.
To make a full-sized shawl of the same width and approximately 60 to 70 inches long allow 2.5 - 3 balls, about 900 yards.

The pdf includes instructions for a narrower version of the original pattern, approximately 16.5in/42cm wide, requiring approximately 2 balls of yarn for a full project.

2016 version with sawtooth lace edges
Knit on 3.25mm/US3 needles with 1168m/1280yds
of ColorShift Earth to Sky color bridge
Dimensions: approximately 23in/58.5cm x 80in/200cm

Thanks to Gail Sheppard for knitting the 2016 sample shawl!

The pdf includes charted patterns with large charts and short written instructions for both versions, together with a full written pattern for the original 2013 version.
