My Cryptonite

Designed by Melanie Berg

Every knitter has their cryptonite — like an addictive stitch or irresistible yarn that becomes an obsession. This generously sized triangle shawl combines some of Melanie's favorite infatuations: thin stripes, funky lace, and crazily contrasting blocks of color. The sideways construction creates an asymmetrical “spine” throughout the shawl, and the combination of textures and colors will make your knees weak!
