Picture early morning walks on the beach and looking out over gently breaking waves through the morning haze.

The ends of the stole are done in a wide lace border reminiscent of breaking waves. Beads give a glint of sunlight off the waves. The main lace stitch pattern gives the feel of breezes and the gentle swells of the ocean.

Fittingly, for the sample shown I chose a gently variegated gray/blue/green yarn in a color called Ocean Breeze. But feel free to choose yarn and bead colors to match the picture story you imagine of gentle breezes on a morning or evening walk.

For Beading (optional) 952 size 8/0 (3 mm diameter) glass seed beads, approximately 25 g; shown in Miyuki color #536 Turquoise Ceylon; needle for stringing beads
