estuarine (5)Estuarine Shawl

This top-down shawl, with a two-colored cable center section, just begs to be wrapped around you!

The dot-knit stitch is a fun and simple way to give texture to the side panels. A sumptuous lace and cabled edging is knit on at the end.
Play with this pattern: you can even work it in a single color, or with a contrasting edging, in case you don’t want to tackle the stranding and intarsia!

Estuaries are a place of transition: rivulets of fresh water mix with the ocean’s salt water. They are a rich and diverse part of the ocean and coastline ecology.
