Inspired by ripples on the surface of water, this shawl was designed and knit during the rainy season in Singapore where I was able to watch the patterns of rain on water nearly every single day.

It was in the context of rain on water that I first discovered the word “myriad,” so it seemed only fair to give this shawl its name.

Knit in two-color brioche, this triangular shawl features faux i-cord edging, rippled top edge, and an undulating motif that is easy to memorize after a few repeats.
