Moonwaves Cowl pattern release

Hi everybody! I’ve been working on this design for a while. It started with a mood board inspired by my love of warm summer nights at the beach: the bright full moon, the soothing sound of waves coming in, the delight of finding shells in the surf at low tide.

I don’t live by the sea and wanted a little reminder of those trips to carry me though the high desert winter cold and dark.

Moonwaves is a relaxing design worked in the round using a variation on the Old Shale stitch pattern, which I love because it looks like ocean waves. It’s long enough to pull up like a hood if you want to, and I used Lion Brand Mandala Sparkle in ‘Aquarius’, which has just enough sparkle to delight your inner mermaid.

You can pick up the pattern in my Ravely shop!
