Drapey, cozy, elegantly simple: Rapport is comfort knitting with a dramatic result. The design is completely reversible and symmetrical, so it looks good however you wear it. The combination of Shibui Silk Cloud and Tosh Merino Light yields a fabric that is soft and warm, with a comforting weight and flickering colour. To make Rapport, you need to know how to knit, purl, and slip stitches. That’s it. The pattern includes instructions for three widths; the length is easily adjustable to suit your tastes. The sample shown is the largest size and is modeled by Josephine Ankarah, who is 5 ft 7 in/ 170cm tall.
Designed by Elizabeth Elliott in collaboration with Shibui Knits and Madelinetosh.

Is there an error with this pattern in the transition part in row 1?
Not that I can see, or that has been reported. If you’d like to email me at the address in the ‘About the designer’ section of the pattern to let me know what part you’re concerned about, I’d be happy to help you with it.
