Overlapping shells in the colours of the sea make up this light and airy shawl. The shells are knitted sideways in garter stitch and shaped with short rows. The finished shawl is about 50 cm deep and 132 cm wide (20 x 52”) and uses 200 g of Crazy Zauberball.

The shells are sewn together only where they touch and I have added buttons at each of these points to catch the light - like the sea on a sunny day.

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising page www.justgiving.com/frankiesknittedstuff

Happy Knitting!
