Sargasso is inspired by sunlight bouncing off shimmering ocean waves. The shawl is worked sideways in one piece and features optional beads along the short edges. The undulating lace pattern looks complicated but is simple and easy even for a beginner lace knitter.
The lace stitches are intersected with narrow garter stitch sections of different sizes, which mirror the way ocean waters seem to flatten in between the cresting waves. The center of the shawl is more solid, while the ends become progressively lacier to further embody the movement of water and the beat of the waves reaching the beach.
