Talbot is all about geometry; a triangle that turns parallelogram that turns into a rectangle. Knitted on the bias you will get a fantastic drape, the garter strips give some visual interest and let you see your progress in a sea of stockinette. Choose your favourite colour to make it your everyday companion, be it on chilly mornings gazing out the window or on a shopping trip downtown..
