Named for the author of one of my favorite fantasy novels, Sabriel by Garth Nix, Nix is an asymmetrical triangle shawl that features panels of squishy and satisfying garter stitch stripes and bold, colorful pops of lace that grow in width as the shawl increases in size. Lace is provided in charted form only. Nix is a great project to play with fun and unique color combinations. The possibilities are endless.
