Breakwater Scarf

This cozy triangular scarf is both simple and stunning. It is entirely garter and is simple enough for a beginner but beautiful enough for knitters of all skill levels to love. The stripes are made up of black and four different shades of blue, and all of the color changes are utilized to create the fringe so there is not a single end to weave in.

The lace pattern in this shawl was created to mimic that effect, creating many different lines for the eye to follow. This triangular shawl is knit from the top using a simple pattern and stitch markers.
