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. In this shawl, you’ll knit seashells, crabs, seahorses, starfish, two kinds of fish and foamy waves.

The shawl is worked from the bottom edge to the middle of the top edge, decreasing every second row to create a triangular shape. This is a garter stitch shawl with every row knit. All charts except for the Seashell Edging Charts show only odd-numbered rows. All even-numbered rows are knit.
