Only Ocean was inspired by coastal storms, during which the waves which roll forward towards the shore look just like this lace. This classic lace pattern using twisted stitches really gives the illusion of waves. I paired the stitch with a classic crescent shawl to add to the stormy, ocean effect.

Pattern is written in one size, but different gauges may be used to adjust the dimensions.

The gauge isn’t crucial on this project, but differences will affect the finished size as well as the required yardage.
