Really love this pattern. It is so elegant and yet practical. The yarn is especially nice. I have used it before and the project came out beautifully. Even though the pattern is a 22 row repeat it seems easy enough to finish in good time. Looking forward to starting this one.

Call it Indian Ocean Wrap or Ocean Elegance Shawl, it doesn't matter by either name you will have a beautiful scarf or shawl. Another fascinating pattern and project from allfreeknitting.com - cannot thank you enough for the ideas and projects you introduce on these pages, especially for the new skills you introduce and the ideas we are able to introduce into other projects

Love this pattern. I'm a beginner at knitting, never used circular knitting needles, at the end of each row do I turn the knitting needles or is there some other way of marking the end of each row / beginning of new row? -)

Hi JiggleBaby501, I like to mark the right and wrong side of my fabric when knitting any project where the inside and outside can be confused. To do this I tie a piece of ribbon to a safety pin or a stitch holder, and place that on the right side of the fabric. Its easy to move closer to the needles and I add rows to my project. When using circular needles for a flat piece, you do switch the position of the needles when you reach the end of the row. Hope that helps.

There is no marker necessary this pattern is not knit in the round, you are knitting back and forth on circular needles as if knitting on straights, the circular is just being used to accommodate the large number of stitches. 180 stitches wouldn't fit on your average straight needles.

Not only do I love the name, but the various shades of blues and greens are fabulous.

This is beautiful. I would like to make this longer for a larger person. How many would I cast on? Thank you!

I'm a relatively new knitter and I'm interested in making it. I'm not sure why you have to use circular needles, though. Do you cast on the 180, then flip the needles around at the end of each row? Can I make it using regular straight needles? Thanks.

You are using circular needles as straight needles here, a rather common practice when knitting large garments, you could use regular straights, but I suspect it would be difficult to find ones that long to hold that many stitches and even if you did, the stitches will be bunched up while knitting , so your stitch definition and texture could be lost. Hope this helps someone.

I'm interested in making this shawl. I'm a relatively new knitter, but I was just wondering why this is knit using circular needles, since it's not a cowl/infinity scarf. I'm not sure how it would work. Do you cast on the 180, then flip the needles around at the end of each row?

I need photos, video? to see how rows 8 and 9 work for the Ocean Elegance Shawl. I really want to knit this. Please help. Sincerely, Debbie McNeil

Row 8: *K1, drop 2 Yo off of left needle, Yo twice; repeat across to last st, K1.-on this row you will be dropping the yo's worked on the previous row off the needle without working them, but you are also creating new ones for the next row. Row 9: Knit across, dropping each Yo off of left needle.-on this row you just knit and drop all the yo's created on the previous row off without working them. I know its a little late, but hope it helps.

Row 8 "drop 2 yo off needle" are the stitched transferred to the right needle or completely dropped leaving them unworked?

They are dropped off the needle, so do not work them. This is what is going to form the eyelets all the way across. Hope this helps.

this is lovely! i crochet right-handed but would love to learn how to knit!
