Bon Echo Pattern
A combination of ribbed textures, cables and dropped stitches make this casual, asymmetric shawl a treat to work and to wear. Worked in Illimani Sabri, a butter-soft blend of organic cotton and baby alpaca, there’s plenty of drape without too much weight, making this shawl ideal for warmer seasons, and with fingering yarn held double at a worsted weight gauge, it’s a quick knit. Dropped stitch sections let your outfit peek through - try it with a Breton stripe, floral print or chambray.
This pattern originally appeared in the Espace Tricot Crossroads Collection.
