In Finnish, “liplatus” is the sound of water gently lapping the shore.

Liplatus is a crescent shaped shawl worked from the top down.

Yarn: Wollmeise DK (214 m / 234 yd per 100 g). Any yarn of fingering to DK weight will do, but I recommend yarn that is not too hairy or uneven to show the ridges.

Gauge: 15 sts and 25 rows per 10 cm in stockinette stitch, unblocked, but gauge is not crucial.

Needles: 6 mm / US 10, at least 80 cm / 32 inch long circular. You can also use straight needles if they are long enough.

Other supplies: 2 stitch markers and a darning needle for weaving in the ends.

Colorway of the blue-green model shawl is Ooohm.
