At the edges of the Pacific ocean, the rhythm of the sea is carved into the sand in ripples as the water licks at the beach and the wind and weather flux.

The ripples are alive, constantly changing with the days, weeks and years and yet there is also a sameness about them, a mirroring of line and shape, no matter which side of the Pacific you’re on.

The ocean that connects us gives us so many reasons to find common ground.

Flux is a gorgeously squishy, large, reversible shawl with an all-over textured “ripple” pattern. She wraps right around your shoulders and includes optional buttons to keep you toasty with a splash of style.

Wear Flux without buttons or experiment with how you button her along the long and fabulous buttonhole i-cord border! Ruche up the edges into folds or pull her low, poncho- style, down your arms.

With a rippled stitch pattern that’s simple to master, Flux is great for adventurous beginners as well as experienced knitters.

The pattern includes charted and written instructions and step-by-step directions for working the i-cord border.
