This is the third in our Salt in the Air shawl series eBook.

On a recent trip to the coast, I watched as a sailboat caught the wind and skimmed across the water. Its billowing sail was breathtaking in its simplicity and clean lines. It inspired me to design something reflective of the elegance and ease it embodied.

The minimalism of this design makes it versatile for many types of yarns and color combinations. The triangle shape makes it a stress-free knit and an elegant, versatile addition to any wardrobe.

The shawl is worked mainly in stockinette stitch with some garter stitch accents. Directions are fully written and charted.
