Waves crash. Gulls call. Sandpipers dodge in and out of the water’s edge, leaving behind evidence of their probings.

Use one, two, or three colors to knit this lightweight shawl inspired by the shore.

Construction begins at the top right corner and the shawl grows diagonally, making the finished shawl slightly asymmetrical. Short rows shape the border scallops and a picot bind-off adds the finishing touch.

There is a separate pdf you can download if you would like more specific swatching instructions.
