The Ocean City Shawlette was inspired by a group of childhood friends who get together each summer in Ocean City, New Jersey, to celebrate 40-plus years of friendship. The Shawlette is a versatile, little layer that fits easily under a coat or blazer in cool weather or provides just enough warmth on a summer evening. It is knit sideways, from narrow edge to narrow edge with a garter stitch body and a wave-patterned lace border. This is a straightforward knit, flexible and versatile, much like the friendships that inspired it! Size: See note below Recommended yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino, 1 skein color #103. Actual yardage used was approximately 450 yards. A note on the size: The pattern as written creates a shawlette that is 60'-62" wide and 12" - 14" deep after blocking. By using a US size 6 needle, one of the test knitters created a shawlette that was 20" deep. The Ocean City Shawlette can be knit in any weight yarn from fingering to bulky and each will yield a different size. Size options are limitless since, apart from changing yarn or needle size, the building blocks of the pattern can be configured in different ways to achieve a custom size. Please take a look at all the projects on Ravelry to get an idea of the different options.
