Because of the nature of PDF downloads, I cannot offer refunds, but I will do everything I can to resolve issues that may arise. Please don’t hesitate to contact me before or after buying this pattern so I can ensure you will be 100% satisfied with your purchase. And thank you so much for supporting independent designers.

This shawl features decorative diamond motifs, interspersed with bold chevrons that mimic those crashing waves. The border is deeply scalloped with a delicate picot bind off that is not only visually appealing but also helps prevent a bind off that is too tight. Blue is an obvious choice for this piece but any solid or nearly solid shade should show off the stitch pattern well.

This pattern was designed in conjunction with the Tidewater Cowl. The two will use just under 2 skeins of Sundara Silky Merino, leaving plenty for swatching, knots or mistakes. Yardage is slightly rounded up to account for subtle differences in gauge.
