This shawl begins at the neck and is designed with the shoulder shaping and a back panel of lace that all Faroese shawls have. The neck border continues down the shawl to create a beautiful seed stitch edging on each side of the shawl.

This pattern does not have any complicated stitches, but all right side rows are different and does require concentration due to the different rows. All wrong side rows are purl across the complete row. No sewing, seamless.

The pattern is not charted, but is fully written, with line by line written instructions.

I am so used to the beaches in Florida along the Gulf of Mexico that I was amazed at the beauty of rocky shores along the California coastline when I visited California for the first time. The beauty is awesome and I was inspired. And since California was my inspiration I naturally picked a California dyed yarn for my design.

This pattern was originally released as a MKAL in March 2016. All of the clues have now been released. At this time the pattern is downloaded as one file.
