This half circle shawl is knit solely in garter stitch and features the Sea Foam lace pattern. This pattern shows off wonderfully variegated and self striping yarns with long to medium lengths of color. Sea Foam lace uses multiple yarn overs which are dropped on the following row. This, combined with the all-over garter stitch, gives an airy,textured, reversible fabric.

While the sample of the Stormy Seas shawl was knit in a handspun yarn, it can of course also be knit with a commercial yarn. For a similar result, use fingering or sport weight yarn. It can be made as small or large as you like, just knit until your yarn runs out.

Difficulty level
This pattern features the Sea Foam stitch, which requires multiple yarn overs, which are dropped on the following row. This takes some getting used to, but is quite easy to execute. This pattern is suitable for the novice to intermediate lace knitter.
