If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

When I first started thinking about this design and what I wanted, I stumbled over a photograph of a whale shark and its fascinating patterning. I looked at many other pictures, but somehow kept coming back to this one.

This shawl is my take on translating this graphic pattern into knitwearβ€”its wavy lines, its dots and the fluid overall impression.

Canopy Fingering turned out to be the perfect yarn choice - its amazing stitch definition really lets the pattern shine.
