Low tide is a magical time of day. Creatures usually hidden below the waves become visible in tidal pools. The lace in this cardigan mimics the organic patterns left in the sand by the ebbing tide. Due to the flyaway front, this pattern is also suitable for maternity wear and bathing suit cover-ups! This is one of many patterns from Pacific Knits. Also available in children's sizes here.
