The Salish Sea shawl is a crescent shaped shawl that features a wave-like lace pattern inspired by sunrise over the Salish Sea, and an arrowhead lace border. The pattern contains three sizes, with both charts and line-by-line written instructions. The dark blue shawl was knit with Robin & Wren’s Rainbird organic fingering in the Stormy Weather colourway. The gradient shawl was worked in Hilori’s Magical Yarnorium’s QBasic (colour: Brandon Winter Fair). Both are a size Small.
