In a compelling balance of geometric linework and openwork, Rivulet reminds one of the languid swaying of seaweed under water, swirling schools of fish, and rippling coastal bedforms. Let its undulating waves gently lap against your shoulders just as the sun kisses your cheeks.

Knit flat with Loft in twisted rib and geometric lace, with optional instructions for crocheted button loops for converting into a cowl. The lace motif is worked from charts only.
