It’s always ourselves we find in the sea.
Stormy or calm sea, waves stroking the beach…we wanted to capture it with our shawl design.
How It’s Made
Though the construction appears to be uncommon, it is clean and easy to knit. The shawl is made of 3 sections: Two rectangular scarves surround a center square, each of them representing a facet of the sea.
Over 150 patterns

We used 3 colors of yarn: Main Color (MC), Contrast Color 1 (CC1), Contrast Color 2 (CC2).
Sample shown in:
Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy (100% organic Merino extra fine (virgin wool), Sport 350yd (320m)/100g), MC (103 garden pond): 2-3 skeins, CC2 (115 air): 2 skeins
Quince & Co Tern (75% American wool, 25% silk, Fingering 221yd (202m)/50g), CC1 (419 popham): 1 skein
Cascade Yarns Heritage (75% Merino/25% Nylon, Fingering 437yd (400m)/100g), MC (5603 marine): 2 skeins CC1 (5610 camel): 1 skein, CC2 (5713 placid blue): 1-2 skeins
If you use the alternative yarn, we suggest a US 5 (3.75mm) needle, or size needed to obtain gauge, for the Garter st Sections 1.1, 1.3, 2.2, 3.2 and an increase of 1 or 2 sizes for working the Old Shale section.
Note: Yarn amounts based on grams
We added an option for using up leftovers of MC and CC1 in Scarf 2.
Size US 2.5 (3.0mm) needles, straight or 24’’ (60cm) circulars
Size US 4 (3.5mm) needles, straight or 24’’ (60cm) circulars
Or size needed to obtain gauge.
If the yarn alternative is used: Size US 5 (3.75mm) needles, straight or 24″ (60cm) circulars
Using US 4 (3.5mm) needles:
25 sts and 30 rows = 4″ [10cm] in St st
Using US 2.5 (3.0mm) needles:
25 sts and 38 rows = 4’’ [10cm] in Garter st
