Kaapa Shawl designed by Inese Sang was inspired by the sand dunes along the coastline of the Baltic Sea. She describes the imagery of her experience and the impact on this design:
“Having grown up living next to the Baltic Sea, seeing the shoreline through eternal cycle of changing seasons and finding the peace and solace in the sandy steps, sea wind and smell of the pine forest, the very first images for a summer design brought my mind back to the sea. I wanted to knit that serenity and lightness in a shawl that would evoke the memories of the fine, soft sand, creaking of the tall pines in the dunes with their roots oftentimes half exposed to the surface, and the sound of crushing waves meeting the sound of wind gusts running through the pine branches.
It is an asymmetrical shawl worked sideways from tip to its widest point featuring a wavy textured side panel and simple body stitch with an i-cord edge and an i-cord bind off. The size is easily adjustable by adding or removing a full or half of the pattern repeats.”
