Stitches of Zen

 Stitches of Zen Shawl

by Jana Huck

Get in zen mode with this gorgeous piece of knitting! The triangular shawl is traversed by a zig-zag line, which divides the shawl into stocking and garter stitch halves. It’s an easy and almost meditative knit, resulting in an elegant shawl with the gorgeous drape that all ITO fibres ensure.

The pattern is available in written and charted format on ravelry
