Wave by Kristen Finlay

Wave, by Kristen Finlay, is a lightweight shawl knit from the bottom up. It increases quickly on the sides creating a wide triangular shape making it long enough to sit easily around your shoulders or to be worn as a scarf. The regularity of the open lace makes this piece well-suited for variegated yarn as well as more solid or tonal colourways. Several of our customers have knit the Wave using Handmaiden Sea Silk and Tanis Fiber Arts Silver Label (100% silk) and the finished shawls shimmer with beautiful drape and depth of colour. This is a great project for that precious single skein of luxury fingering weight yarn you have stashed away.

Pattern available in English and French.
