Orthogonal

6.00

Orthogonal is an extra-large triangular shawl, knit in delightfully squishy garter stitch with an allover graphic pattern of perforated lines created with eyelets. Both engaging and surprisingly intuitive to knit, Orthogonal’s straightforward, top-down construction and integrated garter stitch trims keep the focus on the mesmerizing interplay of simple lace charts. Simple eyelet motifs combine and recombine in unexpected ways, creating an overall pattern that seems much more than the sum of its parts.
