Terra Maris is an easy-breezy lace shawl, about land and sea, and everything else that lies in between.

Garter stitch for sand. Various lace for the ever-changing sea. Slip stitch for little shells, corals, and pieces of polished glass that every wave brings to the shore just for a little while and takes it back again. Everything in this shawl is designed to be simple, relaxing, yet entertaining. And it knits up very quickly.

The shawl is a rectangular shape, worked on the bias from one side to another. Few stitches to cast on, nothing to bind off. Simple lace segments are both written and charted, you can pick and choose which ones you’d like to use.
