An estuary is a fertile place, a junction between riverine and ocean habitats, where the mixing of fresh and salt water creates a gradated ecosystem which nurtures thousands of species.
Estuary is an in-between, watery piece of lace that inhabits the space in between scarf and shawl. If you object to the grandma-ish shape of a triangular shawl, this could be a perfect accessory for you.
The estuary pattern is available as a free pattern download, or as part of Handmade in the UK.
