Using a single skein of luxury, hand-dyed merino/silk yarn, this small shawl is worked from side-to-side to create a lovely semi-circular shape.

Directional panels of lace emulate the gentle currents of the sea and the finished piece was designed to follow the natural curves of the body along the upper back, hugging the shoulders to stay in place.

An i-cord edging neatly borders the longer edges to help the shape of the shawl lay flat, while the combination of gauge and yarn gives a beautiful drape to the finished piece.

Written and charted instructions included.

This pattern has been test knit and tech edited.

Yarn support for this design was kindly supplied by Green Tea Yarns
