Fornjót is an asymmetric garter stitch triangular shawl, which grows from a contrast colour edging. The gentle decreasing means the shawl feels like it is speeding up as you go.

The shawl begins at the short edge of the triangle with a sharply pointed edging featuring a honeycomb pattern that uses slipped stitches to blend the contrast organically into the grey. This honeycomb patterning is repeated in the grey, making the most of the interlocking nature of hexagons to create larger patterns from the smaller motif. The triangle is simply shaped by decreasing along one edge, and, as the shawl narrows the stitch patterns gradually become less open and smaller in scale. Towards the narrow point, the contrast colour is reintroduced to balance the border opposite with a delicate surface pattern worked against the grey background.
