Lake Breeze is worked with a textured pattern that resembles the wavelets formed when the wind blows close over the surface of a lake.
While watching these wavelets, you may notice a kind of even motion on the otherwise plain surface of the lake.

This trianglar shawl is cast on at the bottom tip, and stitches are evenly increased every row to the top edge.
The textured pattern beautifully follows the shape of the shawl which is framed by a 2-st I-cord on all 3 edges.

These features make the shawl reversible – looking its best, whichever side is facing.
