Inspired by the slanting angles of warm summer sunlight, Wyden is awash in three-dimensional texture. Raised ridges of coordinated knits and purls spill forth in energetic bands of zig, zags and lines both parallel and perpendicular. Written and charted for budding and experienced knitters alike, this voluminous triangular shawl is warm and cozy in Arbor’s squishy Targhee wool. Throw Wyden over sun-kissed shoulders at the end of a long day and drink in a striking sunset.
