A wave-like pattern of staggered shells, combined with a soft wool yarn with a long color repeat and subtle color changes gives you Surge - the colors of the beach rolling one on top of another.
This toasty wrap is crocheted from a center foundation chain out to each end, and the buttoned, slot and tab finish gives you more visual interest at the shoulder. One size fits most, a more customized fit can be achieved by lengthening or shortening the length of the piece before the decreases, or changing the button position to suit your own curves.
