"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea/by sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown" - The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, T.S. Eliot
This lacy wrap is perfect for a day at the beach - the lace knitting gives it a lighter, looser feel so that it can be used during warm months, and the chunky wool gives it just enough warmth so that it can be used on cool days.
To get the shawl to come out like this, take a chunky weight, wool yarn in a Sea Green shade (or any color you prefer) and use U.S. size 15 circular knitting needles.
The pattern is on this website.
Wear it at the beach and try to find a mermaid :-)
