Igagasi

meaning ‘waves’ in Zulu


Waves breaking against the soft sand, the soothing sound of the ocean and cool water washing over my feet brings a sense of calm amongst the chaos of the day … I love the sea - its power and its comfort …

The soft undualting waves of Igagasi and the soothing garter stitches bring me the same sense of calm as the ocean. I was searching for a soothing knit, something to curl up with for a few peaceful moments within the chaos of life - simple stitches, calming rows … I found it here, I hope you do too.

Igagasi is worked sideways from a single skein of yarn. The undualting waves gradually increase in size to the centre point and then decrease gradually until your beautiful shawl is finished.

It is easy to adapt to a different yardage and notes for increasing and decreasing the shawl size to suit your yarn are included in the pattern.
