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.
Guest Design from Creations by Courtney on the Joy of Motion Blog. The Sand to Sea Shawl is the perfect layering accessory for chilly days or a night out to dinner. You can add beads to the wave stitches for a touch of bling, or you can choose a sparkly yarn for your bling. Be prepared to be stopped and asked, “Where did you get that fabulous shawl?” With a large grin, you can reply, “I made it!” You’ll learn how to do short rows, attach two pieces of crochet while you work, and add beads without having to sew them on afterwards! Don’t let it intimidate you. Just remember to read the pattern before beginning, and to take your time.

The shawl is crocheted in one piece starting at one end and working in rows all way to the other end which makes it a rectangle shape. It’s an absolute dream to work up and can be made quite quickly once you get used to the stitch layout. I would say this pattern is for the intermediate crocheter due to knowing where to put your stitches. I have explained it as well as possible in the free pattern below so if you are a advanced beginner crocheter you may want to try it out. This Sea Shells Shawl pattern is made in one size but in the paid pattern I have included the multiples so you can make it in any size that you would prefer and with your ideal yarn.
"The shawl is a great accessory for chilly mornings and late evenings when you only need a little something over your shoulders.

The shawl is worked flat with RS always facing; the pattern consists of alternating three colour sections: 6 rows in MC, 3 rows in CC1, 6 rows in MC and 3 rows in CC2. The first and last colour sections are in MC."
