Pacific Shawl: This shawl was inspired by the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean. The optional (but highly recommended) beads suggest the sparkle of sunlight on the waves.
The pattern has three sizes, and uses approximately 330 (small size) to 440 (large size) yards of fingering weight yarn. I used Malabrigo Sock yarn, 100g/440 yards. Gauge is 12 stitches per 2 inches in stockinette stitch; I used a US size 6 needle. Gauge isn’t super critical unless you are making the large shawl; you will want to have an extra skein for the large shawl, just in case.
Charts and line by line instructions for the lace pattern are included.
