Wind & Waves is a long and asymmetrically shaped shawl that beautifully combines rich texture, lovely stripes and airy garter lace sections to be your perfect spring and summer accessory.
This wonderful mixture gives you an interesting and entertaining knitting experience while choosing two of your favorite skeins of that precious fingering yarn add even a little more excitement to it.
The shawl is knitted in the bias from the bottom up, growing in width on one side until two thirds of its size. It is then decreased again until bind off.
Let your mind be free and choose different color options. Solid, variegated, speckled or gradient yarns, there really are no boundaries to your creativity with this shawl.
