Design von Gretha Mensen
The elements of the ocean and the beach inspire me everyday.
Floating out on the water feeling the surge of the ocean in the warmth of the sun and the wind through your hair. It all comes together in the Wave Surfing shawl.
The soothing simplicity of the garter stitch is the perfect complement to the bold and reversible cables of this shawl. The shawl is wearable on both sides.
The Wave Surfing shawl has an asymmetrical but nearly triangular shape with a built-in edge and is worked flat from the right tip to the left edge.
An intuitive and addictive knit, this accessory flies off the needles, thanks to fully written-out directions with stitch counts as well as a schematic and an easy-to-read chart.
