This pattern was designed for the 2016 Ysolda Club and will be exclusive to the club until November 2017. Sign ups for this year’s club are closed but to be the first to find out about future clubs sign up for my newsletter.

Haematoxylum subtly combines elements from the first three patterns in the 2016 club, all of which were inspired by the abstract forms and textures of trees. The shape and construction echo my popular Marin design, resulting in a project that’s fun to knit and easy to wear.

Yarn overs next to the geometric lace edging increase from the cast on tip to the full width. The straight centre section adds a decrease to compensate for this increase and includes three stockinette wedges shaped with short rows. These wedges lengthen the bottom edge and allow it to lay flat, or wrap comfortably around your shoulders. For the final section the decrease compensating for the yarn over is changed to a double decrease, to reduce the stitches back down to match the initial point.
