Pattern Details
Sample shown in Iquitos (orange) with Ishinca (grey)
Abraxas Vertex is knitted from tip to wide border to make an asymmetric triangle – growing little by little, two steps forward, one step back. A simple cable pattern lends an intuitive rhythm to the knitting and makes for a nicely, squishy texture. A contrasting border in mistake rib is knitted along with the body and this rib also completes the shawl in a generous final border.
