Vivir is a 3-color shawl featuring interesting garter stripes. It has a long and shallow shape that can be wrapped easily around the neck. The tapered ends are easy to tuck in but also look stylish if you leave them dangling.
The Spanish word ‘vivir’ means ‘to have life’ or ‘to be alive’.
Check out my CUTILITARIAN KNITS (cute+utilitarian) collection! Vivir is one of four patterns from the collection of versatile pieces that can be easily thrown over any outfit. The patterns primarily utilize knit-purl stitches and feature comforting elements such as stripes, checks, ribbing, and clean lines.
