Product description

Knit a lace stole or a large cowl from the same pattern of diamonds and rhombuses in shifting textures – knit, purl, garter. Both versions of Prism are knit from end to end, and the motif is intuitive to work once established, with lace maneuvers on right-side rows only. Bands of garter stitch divide the cowl into panels, one of which conceals the graft where the ends meet. Vale’s palette offers both bright and nuanced hues to create a spectrum of Prisms that will suit any wardrobe.
