With her generous, enveloping shape, Neruda has a personality of her own. Stitch patterns that are deeply rooted in the tradition of knitting are combined in a contemporary manner and are worked without the need for a cable needle. Let her strong-willed, authentic but playful attitude enlighten your mundane days and celebrate the extraordinary ones!

Neruda is a large triangle shawl worked top-down, starting with a classic garter tab. For the border, extra sts are cast on, after which the border is worked perpendicular to the body of the wrap, by knitting it on sideways and attaching it to the live stitches of the body as it is being worked.

The stitch patterns for Neruda are CHARTED ONLY.

Approximately 225 cm / 88.5” wingspan along the top edge and 75 cm / 29.5” deep.
