Fissure

Uneven zigzags play with the slowly evolving stripes, while contrasting short rows give a bit of curve to the middle of the shawl. Fissure is worked from end to end, the light fabric and bias-knit sections providing movement and drape. To make this shawl, you will need to know how to knit, purl, yarn over, ssk, and k2tog. Pattern instructions are written only (no charts), and include directions for working German short rows.
