The Ocean City Shawlette was inspired by a group of childhood friends who get together each summer in Ocean City, New Jersey, to celebrate 40-plus years of friendship. The Shawlette is a versatile, little layer that fits easily under a coat or blazer in cool weather or provides just enough warmth on a summer evening. Knit from narrow edge to narrow edge in garter stitch with a wave-patterned lace border, the size is easily altered to create a larger or smaller garment. This is a straightforward knit, flexible and versatile, much like the friendships that inspired it!

A note on the size:
The pattern as written creates a shawlette that is 60’-62” wide and 12” - 14” deep after blocking. By using a US size 6 needle, stlmamaknits’ shawlette blocked to 20” deep. The size options really are limitless since, apart from changing needle size, the building blocks of the pattern can be configured in different ways to achieve a custom size. The pattern as written requires 391 yards, but to allow for individual differences, it would be best to have a 10% buffer and start with 430 yards. If you decide to change the size of the shawlette, adjust the yardage accordingly.

Ocean City Shawlette is the first in my friendship series of shawls that are inspired by lifelong friends. Also available are Que Linda and See You in September. There is one more in the works!
