Pacific Islands

$8.00

The color of the waters surrounding the islands in the South Pacific changes from brilliant blue to a dark steely gray in mere moments when a sudden squall rages through, but when the seas are calm the water’s edge has a special quality to it—waves of softest pale turquoise gently caress the sandy beaches with a sparkling brilliance that will take your breath away.

Here a simple shell pattern that makes beautiful points on the cast-on edge is combined with an ocean wave on either side. Knit from cast on edge to the center in two pieces, the halves are then grafted together, or joined with a 3-needle bind off.
