One of the most exotic,
eye-catching finds on any beach is the sea anemone, otherwise
known as the “sea urchin”.
The equally decorative and eye-catching Sea Urchin summer top
is worked sideways in the Wave Stitch. As the final step, the
lower border is picked up and knitted downward to the length
which suits you best.
