Nordic Arrows

Laine Magazine, Issue 1

Overlapping triangles in syncopated brioche – inspired by Norse Runes and Symbols – are the focus of Nordic Arrows. The triangular shawl is knit sideways in stripey garter stitch. A short-row border with brioche corners surrounds the shawl and i-cord edges add a finished look.
