A Walk on the Beach  Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits

If you like my A Walk on the Beach Cowl, you'll love making this shawl version!
This design is the shawl version of my scarf/cowl pattern with the same name.  The inspiration for the pattern came  from the wonderful memories I have of living near the ocean when my two boys were young and our long walks on the beach.  The two cables and wave pattern remind me of two sets of footprints meandering in the sand along the edge of the water. You may have some wonderful memories of walking along a beach on a trip to Florida, or a honeymoon in Bermuda or just a stroll on a beautiful lake with someone special.  Make your shawl in a color that will remind you of that time.

Skill level:

 advanced beginner/intermediate - requires basic knowledge of knitting with decreases

This shawl can be made using DK weight yarn (deep teal colored shawl in photos) or sport weight yarn (sand colored shawl in photos), instructions are the same for both weights.  Make it using wool yarn for winter or cotton yarn for spring/summer!  The stitch pattern is very easy, there are no complicated charts to follow. 



For DK weight version:
800 yards of DK weight yarn
size US 7 (4.5mm) 29” or longer circular knitting needles
For sport weight version:
650 yards of sport weight yarn
size US 5 (3.75mm) 29” or longer circular knitting needles

Knitting stitches used:

knit stitch, purl stitch, cast-on, bind-off


Using DK yarn and size 7 needles in stockinette stitch:  4 ½ sts and 6 rows per inch after blocking

Using sport weight yarn and size 5 needles in stockinette stitch:  5 sts and 8 rows per inch after blocking

 Note:  Gauge isn’t too important, you really just want to make sure that you are getting good stitch definition and drape for this pattern.  Try knitting a swatch by casting on 24 stitches with aran yarn or 36 stitches with sport weight yarn and work the swatch in stockinette stitch.  Adjust your needle size if necessary so your stitches aren’t too loose.

Finished measurements after blocking: 

Shawl using DK weight yarn after blocking:  81” across decreased edge, 65” across cable edge, 45” across scalloped edge.
Shawl using sport weight yarn after blocking:  68” across decreased edge, 58” across cable edge, 38” across scalloped edge.
