Designed to make the most of a single skein of self-striping sock yarn, this shawl gets its name from the wave-like shape reminiscent of ocean; Naia is a feminine name meaning ‘wave’ or ‘seafoam’.

The shawl has an interesting construction, the garter stitch body of the shawl is knitted first from side to side. Without cutting yarn, the lace border is worked along the bottom edge of the completed garter stitch section, and the narrow eyelet edge border is worked last. Lace is written out and charted.

The shawl is shaped into an interesting asymmetric triangle; it is fairly shallow at its deepest point and elongated to allow for different ways of wrapping around the wearer’s shoulders - it can be worn as a traditional shawl or as a long scarf.

Any fingering weight yarn; the original was completed with approximately 400 yards of Must Stash Yarns Perfect Sock-Self Striping (75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon; 440 yards / 100 grams); color Fields of Wildflowers
