This is a simple, asymmetrical garter stitch shawl. The fine yarn and relatively large needle size creates an airy, light weight wrap with a stunning drape.

The stripes are designed in garter ridges to follow a prime number sequence, thus giving it the name Primus.

This is a relaxing knit combining the zen like qualities of garter stitch with the attention keeping combination of stripes.

The pattern calls for 4 colors of yarn. Actual yardage needed are as follows:
200 yards Color 1 (dark purple)
330 yards Color 2 (Medium purple)
400 yards Color 3 (Light Purple)
340 yards Color 4 (Dark Gray)
