knit/lab/coral reef

Shoals of tropical fish shimmer and glide through dropped stitch waves in Coral Reef, a light Summer shawl.

The pattern combines a variety of yarns and colors, with different degrees of transparency. I knit this project with a box of leftovers from previous knits - it’s a great project for using up even the tiniest minnows of your stash!
