So called for its textured pattern, Spindrift features a repeating wave stitch and non-rolling twisted eyelet border. For me this pattern recalls the movement of the sea, breaking waves and conch shells. A true beachy baby blanket.

This versatile knitting pattern is perfect for your little one, and can be easily scaled up to make a gorgeous shawl or throw.
