Meet the Ocean Crest Shawl

The Ocean Crest Shawl is a crochet shawl inspired by the ocean beach. Like solid lines of the sand and changing waves of the ocean, the shawl works in alternating sections of plain double crochet reminiscent of the sand and a wave stitch pattern reminiscent of the water rolling onto the shore. This is a triangular, asymmetrical shawl that's worked from one tip and gradually widens as it progresses.

I'm Natalia Pleshko, the person behind Natalia_yarncraft. I design patterns for makers who love to knit and crochet. If it’s possible I create designs for both crafts, so knitters and crocheters can enjoy the same design, but use their preferable craft to make it. I like to explore different techniques and explain them in patterns as easily as possible. And the fun part and practical at the same time, I love to use yarn up to the last inches and explain in some patterns how you can do it too.
