The shawl is worked sideways, starting with a 3-stitch cast-on at the right side tip. Two alternating slip stitch patterns add subtle stripes to the shawl, mimicking the ebb and flow of the tide, creating an asymmetrical triangular shape, with a nice zig-zag line along one side. Knit up in uber-soft Alpaca Supreme Heavy Lace, this is the cosiest next-to-skin accessory we can imagine!
Approx. 191 cm / 76½“ along the long side
30 stitches and 38 rows = 10 cm in Slip stitch pattern
US 4 – 3.5 mm
The beautiful stitch pattern immediately reminded Anne of the water. This is how she describes her inspiration…
“Right from the start, the changing lines of this design reminded me of the rise and fall of the tide. While visiting my sister in England, we went for a walk to the shores of the river Severn. The river is known for its tidal reach, which is the second longest in the world, and its bore, called the Severn bore, but at the time of our visit, the water was so low it felt you could almost walk across to the other side. I have fond memories of that day and the amazing tidal changes of that river is what have given this shawl its name.”
