Shifting Shores: where meditative garter stitch meets intricate lace in a design inspired by the duality of coastal areas, which are often places for relaxation but are also sites of stormy weather and powerful waves.

This unique four-sided modular shawl is knitted in three shades of yarn from Mrs Lam Yarns and begins with a wide lace panel, incorporating extra stitches which transform into a fringed edge after the knitting is complete. Two garter stitch triangles are added to the sides of the lace panel and shaped using very simple short rows.
