Pattern Details

“The Great Wave off Kanagawa” is, arguably, the best known piece made by master Japanese print maker Hokusai Katsushika. The woodcut shows the rough, foaming waters of the sea tossing the small boats of fisherman as they make their way through rough waters. This 2 color brioche shawl mimics the wave shape of the rough seas in the famous woodcut. The triangular shape is slightly curved to better wrap around your body and has an easy motif along the side and end. The size of your wave is fully adjustable and can be created in any weight yarn. The pattern document contains a chart for different yarn weights and the needle sized to make the fabric density and drape desired. Finished Size: Adjustable, shown in 74” (188cm) x 18” (46cm) triangle shape. Yarn: MC- 2 skeins MollyGirlYarn Honky Tonk DK, 300 yards (274m) per 100g; 75% merino, 25% Ingeo (corn). Shown in color Fairest of the Seasons. CC- 2 skeins MollyGirlYarn Honky Tonk DK, 300 yards (274m) per 100g; 75% merino, 25% Ingeo (corn). Shown in color Stop Wondering. Note: full skeins were not used for sample size Needles: Size 7 (4.5mm) needles or size needed to obtain gauge. Gauge: 10 sts x 22 rows = 4 x 4” (10 x 10 cm) square in brioche stitch.
