Ocean Breeze is a wonderful, crescent shaped shawl that has been designed to be knit in two different yarns of the same colour giving an undulating shawl that is just perfect for a summer cover up for too hot sunshine, cooler evenings, air conditioned restaurants and, of course, the ocean breeze. I have used Lichtfaden Pure Silk Fingering and Lichtfaden Silk Halo (you will need one skein of each) to create a shawl with wonderful contrast in texture. A different effect can be achieved by using different yarns in two different colours. Beaded and textural, this shawl is a fun knit and a lovely accessory for your holiday, weekends or to wear to the office.
Be prepared - beads will be needed right from cast on - you will need around 800 in total. You will also need a 1mm crochet hook or crotat hook to apply your beads, a darning needle to weave your ends in and blocking mats and pins. You will also find it useful to print your pattern on a colour printer.
The pattern is both written and fully charted with bead placement indicated throughout.
