I finished my Seashore Shawl about a week before summer ended. My timing is impeccable! I saw a shawl similar to this when we went to North Myrtle Beach in July. (thus the name "Seashore Shawl" pretty original, huh?!) The owner had it draped over a chair and I kept going back to paw at it and try it on. I bought the yarn at the local yarn shop and the shop owner was kind enough to give me the 'pattern". I love this yarn so much. It is so soft! And it's machine washable due to the fact that it's a cotton/acrylic blend.
I think I could wrap up in this and take a nap. (if I were a napper that is....I'm not a napper- it's a shame.) The color is pale enough that it works almost like a neutral. The color is called Matcha. (?) I'll be enjoying this for a few more weeks until it gets cold enough to bring out the wool....it's perfect for throwing over my shoulders in church or warding off the morning chill when I do my quiet time on the deck.
The cast on edge starts off with ten stitches so you don't end up with a triangular point...it's gentle and it has a nice drape. I used two skeins of Berrocco Weekend and it ended up the perfect size. It's so easy....Cast on 10 stitches using a size 13 needle. Increase at the beginning and end of each row until you have 8 inches - from then on, increase at the beginning only until you have 140-145 stitches. Bind off loosely and enjoy!
Now, you can make your own Seashore Shawl....just in time for autumn!
