Antarktis is simple, modern & fresh.

It is especially designed to make the most of just one skein of fingering weight yarn. Knitted diagonally, it alternates garter stitch and lace sections with an interesting rhythm so you never get bored. The bias construction creates a slightly asymmetric triangle that is addictive to knit and easy to wear.

So if you find yourself knitting one Antarktis… then another… and another… don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;)
