The fifth pattern in the eBook Knitting The Beach, Sand is an asymmetrical shawl worked in a delicate lace pattern with a bold border. The shawl is finished with dramatic i-cord loops across the bound-off edge. Sand will look stunning in gradient, tonal, or self-striping yarns.

Sand is an asymmetrical triangular shawl worked from the right corner to the left side edge. Double decreases shape the wavy edging worked along the length of the shawl on the right side and an i-cord bind-off creates the loops on the left. The asymmetrical triangle shape is created by increasing two stitches at the beginning, and decreasing one stitch at the end of each right-side row, making a curved, triangular shape.
