Picture early morning walks on the beach and looking out over gently breaking waves through the morning haze, this is HeartStrings' Gentle Breezes stole.  A Sandrasingh.com Exclusive Pattern Gentle Breezes is knit in one skein of my Sandrasingh.com Lace.

The ends of the stole are done in a wide lace border reminiscent of breaking waves. Beads give a glint of sunlight off the waves. The main lace stitch pattern gives the feel of breezes and the gentle swells of the ocean.


Fittingly, for the sample shown Heartstings chose a gently variegated gray/blue/green yarn in a color called Ocean Breeze. But feel free to choose yarn and bead colors to match the picture story you imagine of gentle breezes on a morning or evening walk.
