Caribbean Coral Knit Shawl

Caribbean Coral Knit Shawl

Don't you just love the colors in this Caribbean Coral Knit Shawl? They just remind you of a vibrant reef beneath a clear, tropical sea. It even works well on a boat to protect you from whipping winds, while being lacy enough to keep you cool. The best part is that this shawl is actually pretty easy to knit once you have a few simple techniques down. You can probably even finish it up before your summer vacation if you hurry! It only takes three balls of yarn and a hint of saltwater.

A lovely shawl that looks simply elegant when worn casually over a dress as shown. I love the lacy pattern, especially the contrasting Bermuda colored yarn used with the main aqua color. The pattern, though long, seems simple to knit. Best of all, all the wrong side rows are purl, making it easy as well!

Why the buttons? No mention of them in the pattern instructions...

Hey there! As we did not create the pattern, Premier Yarns did, we can't give too much insight as to why buttons were included. However, our guess would be that they were included as an optional addition to this lovely shawl so you could fasten it in the front if you chose to do so. Strange they don't include instructions on creating an optional buttonhole! Regardless, the pattern doesn't seem to require buttons, so add them at your own discretion. Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting.
