Pattern Description:

Sometimes it's a little chilly at the helm of your ship. Or perhaps you want to drape a little something across your shoulders (for modesty?) to greet that boarding party. A shawlette is just the thing. This one uses your favorite sock yarn and the beautiful Crest of the Wave lace pattern, which has enough "lace action" to keep you interested without being so complex that you can't keep an eye on the horizon. I've written out the chart, so if you don't like reading charts, you're out of excuses!
