This shawl features decorative diamond motifs, interspersed with bold chevrons that mimic those crashing waves. The border is deeply scalloped with a delicate picot bind off that is not only visually appealing but also helps prevent a bind off that is too tight. Blue is an obvious choice for this piece but any solid or nearly solid shade should show off the stitch pattern well.
This pattern was designed in conjunction with the Tidewater Cowl. The two will use just under 2 skeins of Sundara Silky Merino, leaving plenty for swatching, knots or mistakes. Yardage is slightly rounded up to account for subtle differences in gauge.
18.25 sts x 26.5 rows over 4" / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch, worked flat, washed and laid flat to dry.
Gauge is not hugely important to the success of this project, but it may impact yardage requirements, and size of your finished piece. If you are gauge swatch averse, my gauge is on the looser side of average. If you know you knit tightly, you may wish to go up a needle size or two.
