Tropical Shores

Who doesn’t dream of sun kissed beach strolls with warm breezes and washed up corals? I know I do. It’s my mental go-to place when it’s absolutely freezing, or when I’m totally stressed out! This shawl is made for wrapping you up in those memories, thoughts, or wishes. ☺

It is a top down triangular shawl that has a little bit of brioche, squishy garter, some simple short rowing, some strips of eyelets just for the fun of it, and finished off with brioche shell motifs languishing in some warm aqua marine waters ;)

Tropical Shores is knit using the super sumptuously squishy Primrose Yarns, Marquess MCN DK. Go check out the fabulous kits that Kelsey has put together.

Primrose Yarn Company, Marquess MCN DK 100g (206m / 225yds; DK weight; 80% SW Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere).

CC: 200g – 412m (450 yds)
Please note: I used up as much yarn as I could possibly squeeze into this shawl. I had only 6g of CC colour left over. If you are worried that you may not have enough due to gauge nuances, I recommend you purchase an extra skein of CC.
