Surf is a generously-sized shawl designed to reflect the rising and crashing of waves on the Pacific Northwest shores of Washington & Oregon.

You’ll enjoy knitting this stunning shawl that begins with a soothing deep blue garter stitch, transitions into striking blue and gray garter stripes, and culminates in a deceptively-easy foamy gray lace with a splashy picot bind off.

Surf is the perfect warm-weather shawl for knitters of all skill levels including advanced beginners and any knitter looking for a relaxing summertime project.
