Creatures of the Reef Shawl

The Creatures of the Reef Shawl is a fanciful look at an ocean reef and the wonderful creatures that live there. With this garter stitch lace knitting shawl, you'll knit seashells, crabs, seahorses, starfish, two kinds of fish and foamy waves.

The shawl starts with a cast on at the bottom edge. As you work your way up, the rows become shorter and faster to knit. At the end, just weave in a couple of loose ends and block! NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Advanced Beginner and Intermediate lace knitters.
