A cool, lacy shell, knit in a linen-silk yarn, is perfect beach wear. Over a bikini, over a tank top, or over a T-shirt. The frothy, wave-like stitch pattern echoes the gently rolling waves along the shore. The matching scarf can be worn on its own or as part of the ensemble.

Knit in a satisfying, easy-to-memorize openwork pattern, the shell is self-finishing.

After knitting and blocking, there is nothing more to do but to sew the side seams.

And you are ready for the beach!

The sample pictured is knit with Hand Maiden’s Flaxen , 65% silk, 35% linen, (250 m./273 yds. per 100 g. skein), colour “Seashore”, size Medium.
