Pebble & Beach is a FREE shawl pattern from Under the Olive Tree Knits.

Ideal for the beginner knitter, it is a simple, quick knit designed to use 1 skein of 100g / 3.5oz, 246 yds / 225m DK yarn.

With no stitch counting required, the shawl is knit in stockinette and the lace border can be introduced at any time. This makes it a fun and adaptable pattern – you can also swap the stockinette for garter stitch for a squishier version.

The pattern is easy to remember making it perfect for TV or travel knitting. And it’s a quick knit, perfect for those last minute gifts!

The resulting shawl is warm and adaptable to wear, throw it over your shoulders, use it as a scarf or wrap it round into a cowl.
