Seiche is a term for a standing wave that occurs in a fully or partially contained body of water.  The well mannered ruffle on one side of this triangular bottom-up shawl is constructed of stockinette short rows contained between garter stitch ridges.  The pattern is written for sport weight yarn but can be easily adapted for other weights.
