If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

Cords of contrasting color twine across Ropedance, each shaped with short rows to form little “knots.”

Their diagonal dance highlights the shawl’s elegant asymmetrical shape, with cushy garter stitch flaring out into a cozy triangle.

Lightweight Ultimate Merino® Woolfolk Tynd provides a rich palette of colors to make this design your own.
