Like its northern cousin Aldred, Tikal is inspired by architecture – in this case an edging, resembling the pyramids at the Mayan city of Tikal in Guatemala, features ribbing to echo the pyramid staircases.

Tikal uses garter stitch short rows to create a graceful arc and give the shawl depth. Tikal comes in one size, and the pattern includes written instructions only.

For the adventurous intermediate knitter.

Starting February 6 and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ , an organization that does good work on behalf of LGBTQ people. I was inspired to do this by my friend Lynne Sosnowski (etcgirl here on Rav) who has written beautifully of her beliefs. I hope Lynne’s thoughts will inspire others to support not only the athletes, but everyone who works hard to be faster, to fly higher, to be stronger, no matter what their endeavor, no matter who they are, no matter who they love.
