The inscribed lines of lacework within the graphic Linocut shawl evoke the deep carvings of this traditional printmaking technique. Featuring a modular motif too alluring to limit to one shape, this pattern comes written and charted for both a triangle shawl and a rectangular wrap in two sizes. Elegant three-dimensional geometry cuts a field of raised garter lace throughout, echoing the dip and curve of traditional horseshoe cables. An optional Icelandic Bind Off accentuates Peerie’s plump stitches and gives your lace space to shine.

We love Ever Greene so much that we decided to make it even easier for you to own the whole collection! Purchase the four-pattern bundle on BrooklynTweed.com and pay $6 less than the sum of the single patterns purchased separately. The designer will still receive their full commission and you will have filled out your library with a classic array of modern, all-weather staples.

Join our Ever Greene KAL, knit with new friends and transform those skeins into favorite fresh looks.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory include written as well as charted instructions.
