  • Cross Sea - Shawl

    Cross Sea is a super fun-to-knit-and-easy-to-wear shawl that combines interlocking sections of garter stripes, representing crossing waves that occur with certain weather patterns, with a lace border that's mimicking the foam of waves breaking onto a shoreline.

    The triangular shape is one of the most versatile shawl shapes out there – you can wear Cross Sea over your shoulders, bandana-style around your neck, or with a shawl cuff or pin.
