Notes From the Designer: 

My little girl nose crinkled at the fishy smell of the docks. My dad and I were about to head out on the boat for a day on the water. We lived in Juneau, Alaska, and the sky, as usual, was overcast – a dull, insistent, mottled grey. We slowly puttered out to the open water, picking up speed and bop, bop, bopping on the waves until we finally stopped to drop our fishing poles into the sea. The churning, endless, powerful depths of the ocean… the air was clear and crisp and laden with the scent of seaweed and salt.

The day ended with the most delicious cod cooked in butter right there on our tiny boat. Thanks, Dad, for a wonderful day that I'll always treasure! This pattern embodies the colors of that day. It’s a perfect, cozy shawl or scarf. Wrap it around your neck on chilly days, or just wear it as a fashion statement. Easy. Comfy. Sea-like.

Thank you for requesting my comments on this shawl pattern. Unfortunately, I have many other projects ahead of this one, however, I will be sure to send a note once completed.

The pattern was not the issue it is beautiful and I was so looking forward to making it. I had saved up to buy some beautiful yarn to treat myself, something I never do, but this time I did. I NEVER got the yarn because it was shipped to the wrong address twice, even after I had sent an email to confirm my correct address. I am very, very disappointed with your company. I seriously doubt, but, who knows, if I will ever do business with you again. Only time will tell.

A pure joy of a pattern to knit! Both sides are equally beautiful. I am just about to begin my first color transition and I can hardly wait. Like Chandi, I knit his pattern with thoughts of my family and the waters of the island home where I grew up. I will be making this again…Thank you, Chandi!

Such an enjoyable and relaxing pattern! I am looking forward to my first color transition, and to the final to see how it all works out. The wrong side of the pattern is just as beautiful as the right side. Like Chandi, I am knitting my own memories of my island home and family into this pattern. I will be making this again!!!

Thank you Chandi for this! I absolutely love this pattern and the way that you have honored your Dad’s memory with your skills & talents and the work of your own hands. Your choice of colors and earthy yarn are such a beautiful way to keep his memory alive. I too grew up by the sea as a little girl and could really relate to your story and the way you’ve used these gorgeous calming sea like colors. I look forward to knitting this! Thank you so much for sharing your heart and this sea inspired beauty with us. xox.

Before getting $$$ yarn, I tried this pattern with a gradient baby yarn on size 4 needles. I doubled the center section to 40 stitches but kept the edging as written. After about two rounds of going through the entire shifting pattern(32 rows) I found the going very easy and this pattern is very easy after that and just enough interest to not be boring and both sides are loverly. Why hasn't this pattern been entered into Ravelry yet?

I love the chance to try to use multiple strands of yarn when I knit this pattern up. I foresee the early creation of anti-winter presents for the end of this year! Thank you for the great pattern, once again!

I love this pattern! It's not difficult and will be just the thing for keeping the chill/freeze off in our Western NY climate ! Using multiple strands will stretch my skill set, as well!

I wanted to try this pattern with some gradient baby yarn before I spent $$ on it. I'm using #5 needles and baby yarn. With only 20 stitches it was way too small, so I doubled the stitches to 40 and just repeated the "inside pattern" once more. It's coming out quite nice. I can't decide which side I like better. It's really reversible.

Beautiful and easy to follow
