Simple Waves Shawl knitting pattern by Lavender Hill Knits

 My very favorite knitting stitch pattern is “Old Shale”, I just love the soft waves the stitch pattern creates.  I used this traditional stitch pattern in a modern asymmetrical shape along with a few stripes that transition to a contrasting border.  An optional simple stripe along the right edge adds additional interest and frames the wave pattern. The shawl is a simple, quick knit that makes for a perfect take-along project.  It is a pattern you’ll return to time and again for its simplicity and beauty.  It also makes a wonderful gift!

Knits up quickly and is a great take-along project to work on while watching the kids at soccer or baseball.  Or when you are waiting at the doctors office or when traveling.  

Both charted and written instructions are given.
