February 12, 2015: The original pattern has been replaced with a new version, which corrects an omission in the written instructions. If you purchased North Sea before today, you’ve received a link to v1.1. Thank you to the perplexed knitter who emailed me!

The Pattern

This little triangle can be worn either as a shawl or a kerchief. It tucks in or wraps around, and is just enough to take the winter chill away. In Clara Yarn Cormo 2.0, it’s luxuriously soft, and the beautiful colors remind me of winter in my neighborhood – North Sea, Southampton, New York.

Skills Needed

Knit, purl, basic lace techniques (YO, increases, decreases). This is a good project for a somewhat adventurous intermediate knitter.


The finished shawl is approximately 46” along the top edge and about 18” deep at the center back.
