"Capture the feeling of delicate, lacy strands of seaweed, white sand beaches littered with shells, and the sparkle of sunshine on the clear, blue ocean. Sargassum is the name of a seaweed that washes ashore on the gulf beaches of Florida, where I recently went for a vacation. The days were full of warm sunshine, but there was still enough of a chill in the early mornings and late evenings to make this shawl a welcome accessory. The striping pattern gently shifts from more green to more blue, without repeating, while optional beads add a nice weight, and occasional sparkle as they catch the sunlight."

This shawl is drop dead gorgeous! I love the variety of stitches and yarns involved. They are just so earthy! I was thoroughly impressed with the amount of forethought and detailed instruction that I saw when I checked out the pattern link! There are both written and video tutorials, charts and diagrams for much of the instruction. I am tempted to go ahead and give this one a try just because it looks like the instruction is soooo good and not because I consider myself to be and "intermediate" crocheter!

This is such a gorgeous shawl, and while it doesnt require any fantastically difficult stitches, there is a wide variety to contend with. The designer does a wonderful job explaining these stitches, including photos and links to other resources. She also includes charts for each section of the project. Take this project along to the beach instead of that trashy novel!

I wasnt really sure what I was getting when I saw the word sargassum and then clicked the link. I did not know what that meant. I have learned that it is a sea weed that washes ashore on the gulf beaches of Florida. I live on the Atlantic ocean side of Florida and had never heard that word before. Love the colors of this shawl.
