The Polytope pattern was designed by Jennifer Dassau. Our sample was knit in Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply in the colors Cordovan and Shale.
A bias rectangle worked from one short edge to the other, Polytope is more than a parallelogram. A line of centered double decreases zooms diagonally across the shawl from one corner to the other, creating a chevron dip where the stitches change direction. A repeating mix of easy to work garter stitch textured stripes, plus mesh lace, both highlight the angles and keep the knitting interesting. The resulting asymmetric shape has four sides that are not quite parallel, not quite straight, and not the same length - but they make a wearable and fun shape that can be styled to show off any of the stitch patterns depending on how it’s wrapped and worn
You'll need two skeins of Yummy 2-Ply, one in each color, to complete this project. Choose the original colorway below − or try another color combination! We have lots of Duos in Woodbury, Yummy 2-Ply, and Caroline to choose from.
You can purchase the pattern for Polytope directly from the designer on Ravelry. All patterns are sold separately and not included with purchase of yarn.
