Inspired by summer days spent at the seaside with waves breaking gently on the shoreline, accompanied by comfy deck chairs and delicious ice cream. The shawl shaping creates a ripple of garter stitch that hugs the shoulders, keeping you warm as the cool breeze blows over you. The delicate, but easy to knit, lace border adds a touch of lightness to the sumptuous folds of each garter wedge.
