Seagulls swooping and frolicking on the beach and over the ocean inspired the
design for this shawl. The lace, texture and colorwork designs in this shawl each
represent Seagulls in flight.
The Seagull Shawl is offered in two sizes and has a bit of easy lace, a unique
textured pattern, and easy slip stitch colorwork with bands of garter stitch framing
each panel. The Mosaic section is perfect for a gradient yarn!
The shawl is worked top-down, triangular and the instructions are both charted and
written. Mosaic (slip stitch) is fun and relatively easy as colorwork goes, given that
only one color of yarn is used per row.
Contrasting colors and a smooth yarn are recommended for the Mosaic colorwork
to be vibrant and visible.
