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.
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.

Knit on 3.25mm/US3 needles with 1168m/1280yds
