Japarta Off Road
This is a fundraising pattern for my late brother, Mino (1971-2004).
“Japarta Off Road” is a triangular wrap/shawl in garter with a rectangular textured section. You start from the shortest side of the triangle and keep decreasing till the end. Everything about this shawl is “OFF” and “Asymmetrical” and there are so many ways to wear it. Enjoy your own 2-color combination, which blends in together.
This pattern is on the Malabrigo Yarn website. :)

All the proceeds of this pattern will be donated to the Minoru Hokari Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Australian National University. My late brother, Minoru Hokari (“Mino” 1971-2004) died of cancer at the age of 32. The scholarship fund supports young scholars who study Indigenous Australians through fieldwork. We are trying to fully fund it to achieve its perpetuity. Please help.
