Let summer breezes waft through your stitches in Submerge. This asymmetrical drop shawl features alternating cables for a rippling effect through the design. As if lighting upon the water’s edge, butterfly dip stitches flutter through the I-cord Bind Off. To keep it simple for those wanting a shallow end dip into drops, only the drop stitches are purled making them easily recognizable throughout the work.

The tech edited and test knit pattern is fully written with the repeats charted.

Special Notes:
• Join It: as with Arachania, if your yarn has a gradient with a dark and a light end, make sure to cast on at the darker end of the skein and join the second skein at the lighter end so the two light ends match up.
