This tessellating motif is true knitted lace: the striking geometric pattern is worked on right-side and wrong-side rows. Knit in Loft, this shawl is light as sea foam. Directions are given in both charted and written form for three widths, from a scarf to a large shawl. All versions measure six feet in length, so you can easily wrap your Tetrapods about your neck and shoulders or leave the ends loose for an elegant drape.
