This top down, triangle shaped shawl uses simple lace and introductory mosaic stitches to create waves and pebbles mimicking the creeks we played in as care free children. The best part? You don’t have to purl a stitch!

Becky Creek Shawl is a perfect opportunity to pair that hand painted variegated yarn that brings us such joy in the hank with a more tonal or solid yarn to ground the color changes. Be sure to use two yarns that are different in tone or depth of color to really make those pebbles pop.

Need some color combo ideas? Kits from The Frosted Stitch are available. Look to the last page of the pattern for a 15% discount code!
