Saltwater Shawl is an elongated triangular shawl that combines wonderful texture and elegant stripes in two colors to form the perfect feelgood accessory for already sunny but still windy spring days. Its generous size allows you to wrap yourself up nicely, take a deep breath and enjoy every moment of your day.

While the texture uses different slip stitch techniques, there’s of course no shawl without a little bit of garter stitch. I-cord bind off creates the perfect finish for this wonderfully wolly shawl.

Saltwater is perfect to bring your mood and inspiration to live through your choice of colors and yarn. Whether that’s using rather similar colors to get a chic and luxurious look or very contrasting colors for an eye catching one of a kind piece.
