Tidelines is a shawl you can truly make your own. This asymmetric shawl has garter stitch with alternating stripes of fishnet lace and eyelets. The stitch patterns are relaxing to knit and let your yarn be in the spotlight.

The pattern is written for fingering weight yarn, but you can easily adapt it to any amount of yarn or yarn weight. So pick the yarn that’s calling your name and cast on!

Shown with one skein of fingering weight Wollmeise Pure (100% Merino; 525 m / 574 yds per 150 g), in colourway Jeton.

This shawl can be worked in any yarn weight and yarn amount. You simply work the pattern repeat until you run out of yarn or reach your desired size.

Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Or size that gives you pattern gauge.

This shawl is worked flat but I recommend using a 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.

If you’re not using a fingering weight yarn, choose a needle size that gives you a neat but loose fabric with beautiful drape. The needle size on the yarn label is almost always too small for shawls. So don’t be afraid to go up from the yarn’s suggested needle size.
