Ocean Spray Shawl

Ocean Spray is a long triangular shawlette or scarf that is just the right length to wrap around the neck once. Garter stitch is knit to a looser gauge to create a soft cushy fabric that drapes nicely, and the lacy edge provides interest and charm. This shawlette is perfect to wear underneath a coat or as an accent piece in warmer weather.

Pattern Notes

If using a different yarn, or if you want a larger shawl, work until half your yarn plus 10% remains, then start Part 2 (e.g. if you have 150 gms, work Part 1 until 75+15 or 90 gms are left, then start Part 2.)
