If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

Inspired by the vast sea and stark, beautiful cliffs of Helgoland (a famous German island in the North Sea), this asymmetrical triangle shawl is lightweight and warm.

A wide swath features a two-color stitch that is easy to knit and looks lovely from both sides, while a striking contrast garter section creates interest. Tassels add a fun touch.

It’s beautiful in a sea-and-sand-inspired palette, or find color inspiration in the natural beauty of your own backyard.
