The Sea Glass Memories Shawl is inspired by those remnants of discarded glass objects turned into enchanting treasures that grace our shores. Worn and polished over time by the ocean’s caress, they radiate a mesmerizing frosty glow and become spectacular gifts from Mother Nature and her coastal waters.

This asymmetrical shawl starts out with just a few stitches and is the perfect pattern for a gorgeous solid, tonal, or very gently variegated skein of fingering weight yarn. Want a larger shawl? Just keep knitting! This shawl is simple to adjust for a larger size by continuing on with additional repeats.

The elegant lace stitches mirror the magic of sea glass, capturing light in a manner reminiscent of the memories kept in glass jars on windowsills.

The lace is simple to follow, and the only stitches used are knits, purls, yarn overs, k2tog, ssk, and m1L.

The pattern has:
• fully written instructions,
• the repeat is charted, so you can take your pick to work from,
• and a Stitch Count Table is included to help keep you on track.

Ultimately, this shawl is more than an accessory; it’s a reflection of our connection to the sea, the coastline, and the stories they whisper. It’s a celebration of taking unwanted fragments and shaping them into something exquisite.

Wrap yourself in a bit of magic inspired by the ocean, and allow its intricate tales to resonate as you revel in the timeless allure of the seaside no matter the season.
