a Captivating Seaside Lace Capsule

Rippling waves next to banks of soft sand and lush seagrasses beckon us to push off the shore. Here, at the water’s edge, all we have to do is step into the boat and push off into the horizon to chase the sunset into tomorrow. And that imagery is the inspiration behind Tabetha’s newest capsule collection: Seaside Lace.

These three pieces—two shawls and one pullover—are delicate, lacey, and perfect for the early Autumn ahead.

Of course, our patterns always include both written and charted instructions for the stitch patterns. And if you’re new to lace, we’ll happily help guide you into the world of eyelets over at the School of SweetGeorgia in the Become a Lace Knitter course.

You can find the three Seaside Lace capsule pieces available on our website and Ravelry. Each one is available individually, but with the code SEASIDEBUNDLE, you can get all three for C$24 (the code works on the site and Ravelry).

As you knit, imagine sitting at that water’s edge and dreaming…
