Pattern description from Mason-Dixon Knitting: “Named for Phyllis’s daughter, Nina provides the perfect framework to play with color. the rules are strict: Follow the stripe pattern, don’t forget the checkerboard, and pay attention to how your colors contrast and complement. But beyond that, this handknit can morph from a cotton shawl to a mohair throw to a tweedy wrap.”
