Gone Fishing is the perfect project for when you want to take some time out. It starts off as a simple, meditative knit as you work a relaxing stretch of smooth stockinette stitch, and then bead by bead little fishes begin to appear. It’s so satisfying seeing the shoal of fish start to grow as they swim across the middle of the shawl. Simple k2tog, yo lace stitches form lacy air bubbles from the fish, and once they are completed it’s time to expand on the lace stitches to work the border. A pretty feather and fan lace stitch completes the design, creating soft waves that ripple along the bottom of your shawl.

The shawl is knitted with lace yarn but the beads provide a reassuring weight to the drape, so your shawl sits nicely in place around your shoulders.  

Video tutorials are linked for all of the stitches used, including how to add beads with a crochet hook. A handy stitch count checklist is also provided.
