This shawl is a quick knit designed with mild short rows and mosaic work for a dynamic visual and asymmetric balance. Named after a line taken from Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49, the work’s grid-like patterning calls to mind electric motion and circuitry… and it works up electrically quick!
