Perrine’s Bridge is knit side to side with stripes and slipped stitches, increasing to the full length & then decreasing back to the end point making for an accessible construction. The contrast between marled Rockwell & fuzzy Valkill make for a dense & textured fabric with asymmetric lines spanning the width.

This big, squishy, asymmetrical triangle shawl is really more of a blanket for your neck - the stitch pattern makes it almost the thickness of two layers of knit fabric. This creates a piece that’s not just extra warm, but also kind of sculptural to wear - try styling it different ways to find your favorite look!

The background pattern has a similar feel to garter stitch, but half the lighter color stitches are slipped, making the darker color act as the main color, so that the lines really pop off the background.

The lines are made with slipped stitches running straight across the first section, then twisting to travel diagonally up to the top edge, criss-crossing each other as they go.

Pattern is entirely written and charted and a schematic and flat photo are included.
