The warmer months are perfect for casting on some breezy summer knits. If you’re looking for a light and airy shawl, something you can throw over your shoulders once the sun goes down, the Pebble Beach Shawl by Helen Stewart from Curious Handmade ticks all the boxes.

The Pebble Beach Shawl is crescent-shaped and features eyelets all over. The pattern includes three sizes to choose from, so you’re guaranteed to find a size you love. Each size uses a different weight of yarn, but all sizes are designed to be knit with only one to two skeins of yarn.

The eyelet lace pattern is simple to knit yet stunning, and the stitch pattern is very easy to memorize, making it the perfect project to bring along with you anywhere. This shawl would also be a wonderful first lace project for anyone who’s wanting to give lace knitting a try.

The shawl has three sections of eyelet stitches that are slightly different from each other. It creates a beautiful look to the shawl and also keeps the project engaging. The shawl is finished with a picot bind-off that compliments the design so beautifully. The pattern gives instructions for the picot bind-off, plus there are many helpful videos on YouTube if you need a visual on how to do it.

To knit the small size, you’ll need 400 meters of sock/fingering weight yarn. For the medium size, you’ll need 600 meters of heavy lace-weight yarn, and for the large size, you’ll need 800 meters of lace-weight yarn.

Yarns with some silk content would be perfect for this design as they create a beautiful drape, but of course, you can choose whatever fiber makes you happy! It is your project, after all!

Happy knitting, fiber family!
