This fun top-down triangle shawl was inspired by my trip to the Bahamas in March. I grabbed these colors and started on the plane ride over.

Bahama Breeze is a sister pattern to 4-ever in Blue Jeans. Same stitches, just bumped up a notch!!! This design plays with using 2 colors in the Bee Stitch (addicting) and a bit larger mosaic repeat for a bold statement!

-If you loved 4-ever in Blue Jeans - this is your next adventure!!!

Mosaic knitting is an easy colorwork technique that uses slipped stitches and only one color at a time.

The pattern comes with written directions and charts for the mosaic section.

Yarn: For both my shawls I chose the super squishy crazy beautiful-

Emma’s Yarn Super Silky (80% Superwash Merino/20% silk, 400yards/100grams)

Blue-Green Shawl
• Main Color (MC): Just Add Salt (lime) 375 yards
• Coordinating Color (CC1): Mexican Wedding Dress (speckled) 250 yards
• Coordinating Color (CC2): Zuni (turquoise) 330 yards

Yellow- Coral Shawl
• Main Color (MC): Yellow Submarine 375 yards
• Coordinating Color (CC1): Don’t Call Me Peaches 250 yards
• Coordinating Color (CC2): Briar Rose 330 yards

Needles & Notions:
US 4/3.5mm 32” circular needles & one US 8/4mm for cast on and bind off, Stitch Marker, T-pins and blocking wires for blocking

16 stitches = 4 inches in Bee stitch after blocking. Although gauge is not crucial for this project, it will affect the finished size and yarn requirements. A looser gauge will result in the use of more yarn.

35” deep x 68” tip to tip after blocking.
