The Spindrift Shawl is inspired by the expansive Pacific Ocean. The deep sea swell of the crescent shape is complemented by a deep eyelet border and picot edge which froths like the foam at the crest of a wave.

This one-skein pattern is ideal for using that special skein of sock yarn which has been waiting patiently in your stash. It looks equally beautiful in plain or lightly variegated colourways. This is a really simple design: a perfect first pattern for new shawl knitters and a wonderful project for sociable knitting or to bring along as a travel companion.
