Simple and chic with bias construction, garter, and lace. Hemrick is ideal for speckled yarn, though looks equally beautiful in solid or lightly variegated colourways. Hemrick’s asymmetric triangular shape is achieved by working simple increases at the end of each RS row. Shawl size is easily adjusted by adding more or less rows to each garter or lace pattern section.
