Ocean City Shawlette
The Ocean City Shawlette was inspired by a group of childhood friends who get together each summer in Ocean City, New Jersey, to celebrate 40-plus years of friendship. The Shawlette is a versatile, little layer that fits easily under a coat or blazer in cool weather or provides just enough warmth on a summer evening. Knit from narrow edge to narrow edge in garter stitch with a wave-patterned lace border, the size is easily altered to create a larger or smaller garment. This is a straightforward knit, flexible and versatile, much like the friendships that inspired it!
A note on the size:
The size options really are limitless since, apart from changing needle size, the building blocks of the pattern can be configured in different ways to achieve a custom size. The pattern as written requires exactly 391 yards. Having an extra 10% buffer to account for differences in knitting is a good idea,
