Send Me That Horizon

I’ve always loved the sea. I grew up near the ocean, with both sets of grandparents living a few dozen feet from the water. Playing on the beach, listening to the waves, sailing on a boat, hiking along ocean-side cliffs – I love anything involving the sea. But nothing is the same as being far from shore with no land in sight. I love seeing the horizon taper off to meet the ocean waves; so when I first watched the original Pirates of the Caribbean movie and Captain Jack Sparrow looked into the distance and murmured “Send me that horizon” under his breath my heart sang. I know that feeling, I love that feeling, and with this shawl I want you to experience it too.

This is an easy pattern (most of it is stockinette) and also easy to adjust the length - providing you have enough yarn, you can make this shawl as deep as you want. Incorporating a variation of the feather and fan/old shale, if you can k2tog, ssk and kfb you can make this shawl.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knit. Thank you Rosifluky, CollinViljoen, Canberra, VSchneider, Kathydunlop61, and karolyn1234! An extra special thanks to the beginning knitters willing to test knit, you all are marvelous.
