Saltwater Taffeta is a shawlette with staggered lace panels and short-rows to give it shape. Yep. Short-rows in the lace pattern. And a sideways cast-on. You’re welcome, nerds.

Although the concept seems pretty complex, once you get in the rhythm of the pattern, it will fly by, and the result is gorgeous.
