Our landscape is wildly diverse on the West Coast, and we locals wouldn’t have it any other way.

Rocky shores, lush rainforest, grassy fields, tall peaks, ocean waves & urban skylines. This shawl uses motifs inspired by the tradition of far off island of Guernsey Island, to share stories of life on Vancouver Island, in the Pacific Northwest Coast of Canada. Keep warm during the change in weather, cool ocean breezes, & rain with this generously sized worsted weight shawl.

Pattern is fully charted and written.

Make it your own - if you’d like, choose 115 grams of complimentary color for a gradient effect, and begin knitting with this shade. Switch in a garter section when you’re near running out of yarn (for me, that was just after Gulls & Garters Motif!).
