Errata: If your pattern doesn’t have a little revised September date in the lower right, then there is an error in Decrease Section 1. Rows 1, 5, 9, and 13 should read K1, yo, k2tog, K to 2 stitches before marker (instead of K to marker),K2tog, yo, slip M, work edging.


YARDAGE CHANGE: due to a combination of generous skeins and inaccurate scale, I may have underestimated the amount of yarn required. Unless you are using two skeins of Pediboo, (and you should) allow 500 yards of sock weight yarn. If you have less, you can do fewer repeats in each section.

Size: One size wrap/shawlette
77” (2 meters) long, 20” (51 cm) deep at widest part after blocking

Materials: 500 yds fingering weight yarn.
Neap Tide is worked at a loose gauge to provide drape.

A Neap Tide is a tide that occurs when the difference between high and low tide is least; the lowest level of high tide. The name was inspired by the shape of the wrap itself and the edging; both are gently curved and wave with no extreme highs or lows.

Thanks so much to my fab test knitters:
