The phenomenon of “oceans colliding” is when freshwater sediment from the thawing glaciers runs into the ocean and creates a visually striking scene, thus a convergence. The Glacier’s Thaw Convergence Wrap is made using the simple yet classic chevron stitch to mimic the ever flowing movement of water, the ocean’s waves
