Wool and Waves

Designed by Casapinka

What do you call a shawl that you design and knit at the beach, lifting it above blowing sand, and avoiding soda, sunscreen and sandy, wet kids while doing so? Well, "Wool and Waves", of course. This is a large, asymmetric (boomerang) shaped shawl. It's easy and made for relaxed knitting. The colors remind me of waves, sky, beach umbrellas and great times where all I needed were a couple of needles, and some laughter to keep me happy. A Mai Tai wouldn't hurt, either!

Sample Yarn and Colorway:

Our sample was knit in the Miss Babs Fun in the Sun Gradient Set and Quicksilver Yummy 2-Ply.

What You'll Need:

There is a technique that I used in Painted Windows, where you knit two of the yarns together for a bit - it's subtle and optional. It's not intarsia (but intarsia is awesome and you guys should learn to love it!)


You'll need one Gradient Set and one full skein of Yummy 2-Ply to complete this project. Choose the original colorway below - or try another color combination!
