The Pacific Coast is a beautiful and dramatic landscape, much different from my home. Its misty air, rocky coast and deep blue ocean create a dramatic foreground, perfect for whale watching. This shawl will keep you cozy as you peer out at the sea. Who knows, you just might spot one!

The Whale Watching Shawl is an asymmetrical triangle shawl knit from the smallest point, increasing each garter ridge until binding off. It features an I-cord edge that is worked as you go. The I-cord bind off results in a smooth, finished look.
