This is the third pattern for year 5 of my 7 Small Shawls eBook series.

Vertices is an asymmetric shawl based on a modified log cabin construction, with alternating panels of lace and garter stitch. It can be worked in one color or many colors, and in any weight of yarn! Instructions are given for a one color light fingering weight version, a two color light sport weight version, and a 4 color worsted weight version. Choose your colors and have a great time with it! You can easily make it larger by adding more repeats.

Note that different knitting styles seem to affect garter stitch more than other stitches; beware that you may need to purchase extra yardage or go down in needle size if you are a loose knitter. When choosing to substitute yarns, be sure to purchase extra yardage, as the different spin and fiber content of the yarn may affect the amount of yardage used.

This pattern includes full written instructions and full charts.

About the series:

Note knitCompanion set-ups can be purchased (in the knitCompanion store) for those who like to use knitCompanion, but do not wish to set up their own charts.

Welcome to year five of my subscription series! The idea for my first eBook subscription (Year One: The Pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I reached my goal that year, and the next year I was back for more challenge. After that, I realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions. I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! 7 is one of my favorite numbers, and so I am still doing 7 small (and not so small) shawls with 3 (my other favorite number!) accessories thrown in.

Lately, I’ve become more than a little obsessed with asymmetry. Asymmetry in color, shape, and stitch pattern…the more I have sketched and dreamed, the more possibilities have come to me. I ended up with a sheaf of designs, and I’m so excited to share them with you!!!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending in August, 2016. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern. All patterns will have charts and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of one skein of sock yarn or an amount of sock yarn comparable to that needed for a pair of socks. Some will be two colors, and maybe even three! But you won’t need more than one skein of any color. There will be a few little extras sprinkled throughout and all patterns will be available to purchase separately!

Are you ready? Happy knitting!
