Over the weekend I released my first design, a small shawl called Wave.

'Wave' is knit from the bottom up and is shaped into a wide triangle which, when thrown over the shoulders, will sit perfectly in place. The shawl is also long enough to be scrunched up and used as a light-weight scarf.

The alternating 'waves' of Turkish Lace and Garter Stitch look really nice when knit with variegated yarns (I have a real soft spot for these types of colourways!) but of course semi-solids would look wonderful too!  The other great thing about these stitch patterns is that they both form a knitted fabric that is totally reversible.

Wave is a one skein project which requires a yardage of around 366 - 402 meters / 400 - 440 yards.  My samples were knit using a skein of Skein Silk/Cashmere Lace and BFL Sock, both of which are variegated colours.

Wave is available as a free pattern, you can download the PDF here.  

Hope you enjoy!

I'm in love. I happen to be knitting a very simple garter-stitch triangular shawl right now in pashima and am looking for another one with more stitch detail. Yours is perfect -- thanks for sharing it as a free pattern.

That's absolutely gorgeous, love it! I was looking for a nice shawl pattern, this is it. Now to choose the perfect yarn to go with it, hmmmmm :)

A lovely shawl pattern that also drapes beautifully as a scarf.
