Seagulls swooping and frolicking on the beach and over the ocean inspired the design for this shawl. The lace, texture and colourwork designs in this shawl each represent Seagulls in flight.
The Seagull Shawl is offered in two sizes and has a bit of easy lace, a unique textured pattern, and easy slip stitch colourwork with bands of garter stitch framing each panel. The Mosaic section is perfect for a gradient yarn! See this wonderful tutorial by Felicia at Sweet Georgia Yarns for working Mosaic colorwork using this shawl pattern.
The shawl is worked top-down, triangular and the instructions are both charted and written. Mosaic (slip stitch) is fun and relatively easy as colourwork goes, given that only one colour of yarn is used per row.
Contrasting colors and a smooth yarn are recommended for the Mosaic colourwork to be vibrant and visible.
