Haematoxylum

Haematoxylum subtly combines elements from the first three patterns in the 2016 club, all of which were inspired by the abstract forms and textures of trees. The shape and construction echo my popular Marin design, resulting in a project that’s fun to knit and easy to wear.

  • CONSTRUCTION

    Yarn overs next to the geometric lace edging increase from the cast on tip to the full width. The straight centre section adds a decrease to compensate for this increase and includes three stockinette wedges shaped with short rows. These wedges lengthen the bottom edge and allow it to lay flat, or wrap comfortably around your shoulders. For the final section the decrease compensating for the yarn over is changed to a double decrease, to reduce the stitches back down to match the initial point.
