DIP: Morro Shawl

meadowThe Morro Shawl is up for testing in my Ravelry group!

Here are the details:

Love the Estuarine Shawl, but either want more of the edging and dot knit pattern, or maybe something a little simpler than the two colored cables?

This sideways knit shawlette features the dot knit stitch in a textured side panel, and a sumptuous lace and cabled side edging that’s knit at the same time. It’s easily sized to your yarn quantity; work the repeats according to the recommended percentages of your yarn weight.

Morro is shown in two different yarn weights: laceweight Meadow, shown above, and worsted weight Knightsbridge, shown below. You can work it in any weight following the guidelines in the pattern.

My grandparents took me and my younger brother Paul to Morro Bay so many times when we were growing up. Grandpa would go deep sea fishing, and the rest of us would go beachcombing and exploring. The Morro Bay Estuary is a vibrant, thriving estuary on the Central California coast.
