I know it is daunting diving into directions without knowing what you are knitting, so I wanted to provide extra help if you need it. Without giving too much of the pattern away, the first video is a short how-to of the initial modified I-cord cast on directions. You can watch that video here. And please forgive me – in an effort to cover both right handed and left handed knitters, I demonstrated both. I wholeheartedly admit that my left handed knitting skills are still developing, but I didn’t want to leave you lefties high and dry! So lefties …

Rising from the depths of the ocean, oxygen air bubbles bloom bursting forth to the surface. Oceanic lets you feel the gentle breezes like soft waves caressing your skin. Rich with the colors of deep waters, this shawl makes a beautiful accessory for any unique occasion. Inspired by TheUniqueSheep’s organic cotton and bamboo fingering yarn, their “Deep Waters” colorway, World Ocean Day, and this image from Lagoon Shallows photo shoot, the design dives into the depths of ocean currents through color and texture.
