The Achiote tree, found in regions of tropical America, produces heart shaped fruit that have dark red seeds. The spice Annatto is produced from these seeds. It is used to give a sweet and peppery flavor as well as a red color to many foods. Knit in a yarn with a touch of cashmere, this shawlette is soft to the touch and warm on chilly days. This is a triangular shawl with a garter stitch border that is knit from center back to the bottom edge. Yarn overs at each end and along the center stitch are used to form the triangle shape. Increases are worked on right side only.
This pattern is entirely charted and adjustable in size.
