Note about skeins:** The pattern states that you need 1 skein of Color C if working in Loft, but you in fact need 2 skeins! This will be updated in the pattern just as soon as I have a chance.*

This shawl, with its beautiful shifting shades and wave lace edge is inspired by the colors and sounds of the beach. It is the perfect thing to wrap around your shoulders as the winds begin to change. I adore simple shawls for comfort knitting, and love a shawl with just a touch of lace. This shawl combines all my favorite things: simple construction, with just enough interest with the addition of stripes, a touch of lace for some beauty, and a heart shape that stays easily on the shoulders without a lot of fuss.
