Water and sunshine, both call forth the warmth and allure of summer! The Water Music shawl, worked primarily in a combination of linen and silk yarns, makes for the perfect warm weather garment.

Worked in an ever-changing series of short-row segments in easy lace stitches and Garter Stitch, this pattern allows for a play of many colours. Choose a watery palette as I have done or one of your own devising, inspired by flowers or forest or mountain ranges.
