PATTERN DESCRIPTION MATERIALS
The image of the wavy line between stitch patterns came to me as I awoke one morning. Soon after, I set about trying to chart it. Once I chose the two stitch patterns to best represent the image in my head, I realized that the eyelet pattern represents bubbly sea waves as they crash against a wall of subtle cable "stones." Thus, the Balla Mara was born. ("sea wall" in Gaelic)
The shawl work begins at its pointy deepest and by increasing two stitches every right-side row you build a shawl wide enough for wrapping yourself in coziness. The pattern is completely charted and written so that you may rightly navigate all the twists and turns of that wavy line.
