In Western Australia we have many amazing beaches, from Lucky Bay in Esperance in the south with it’s white sand and turquoise water, to Cable Beach in Broome up north where you can ride camels along the sand. Cottesloe Beach is closer to me than either of those and it’s an iconic beach, with incredible sunsets. I grew up not far from “the beach” but now don’t get there often, but some days I long for it, especially in the middle of winter. Some days I just want a reminder that the beach exists and that I could dip my toes in the Indian Ocean.
Cottesloe Days is inspired by days at Cottesloe beach and striped beach towels. It’s a long striped fingering weight accessory that can be worked as a cowl, scarf or as a convertible scarf (instructions included in the pattern). Cottesloe Days can be worked in anywhere from one to 21 colours and the pattern includes amount required for each stripe. It would be a fantastic way to use up those odds and ends you have stashed. A schematic of the stripes has been included for you to colour in and work out your colour sequence.
Cottesloe Days is 25% off until midnight December 23, 2015 AWST.
