Lace flows gently across the border of this shawl in a sweet, symmetrical pattern.
It approaches and recedes from the garter stitch portion like waves lapping up to the shore.
The design is named for the colorway that inspired it:
Agua Dulce, which translates to sweet water.
Agua Dulce can refer to a drink, or to what we would call fresh water,
which provided inspiration for the design.
Agua Dulce is both written and charted! The charts and text are either on the same page, or one page right after the other so you can reference them easily without a lot of page shuffling.Shawl Dimensions:
