Knit in one piece from corner to corner Antipodes is a glamorous, lightweight shawlette that uses just one skein of yarn.

The long, narrow crescent-shape, a play on classic shapes, is designed to twist twice around your neck, showing off the striking lace and beautiful drape.

The lace is deceptively simple and knitted at the same time as the shaped garter body.

With written & charted instructions, Antipodes is perfect for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners wanting to create something very special.

The pattern includes a clear explanation on how to make adjustments for a longer or shorter shawlette and includes instructions to ensure you don’t run out of yarn!
