Ambershore is an ode to the coastline of the Baltic Sea and is inspired by the beauty and colour magic of washed out pieces of amber hiding amidst drying algae along the white sandy beaches. Little glimmers of warm hope and surprise waited to be found. Especially after the storms. I used to spend hours there, digging through algae and sifting through the sand to collect the little amber treasures and I still hold on to all my tiny findings in a little box and the beautiful childhood memories they carry.

Ambershore is a symmetrical triangle shawl worked top down featuring easy alternating stockinette and simple stranded colourwork sections with tiny crochet bobbles and is finished with twisted ribbing edge. The colourwork is done on the right as well as wrong side of the project.

The pattern has been thoroughly tech edited and test knitted.

The pattern requires skills to work from both - written instructions as well as colour charts.
