A classic DK weight pattern. We suggest staying away from variegated yarns that take away from the natural texture of all that brioche. Speckled or tonal is totally fine though!
This pattern is published in 52 Weeks of Shawls by Laine Publishing.
Quicksand is a reversible triangular shawl worked sideways. Shaped with increases hidden in the side cable, it features an intriguing cable pattern meandering through brioche pockets, and is topped off with an i-cord bind-off at the widest part.
The cable pattern features rope-like twisted strands receding and approaching each other. Hanna Maciejewska was inspired by the beach with sand going this and that way, and little boats bobbing up and down on the waves, tied with halyards to the docks.
