This pattern is a part of the Family Connections e-book.

This project uses Fission Knitting to create a design that is different on each side of the fabric. The result is cables overlaid on both sides of a marled garter stitch middle layer. Two lace weight yarns are held together throughout this project. This creates a fingering weight fabric that is airy yet substantial and very warm.

On one side of the knit, zig zags are evenly spaced and are worked in a single colour creating a simple, calming beauty. On the other side, intensely spaced zig zags highlighted by a contrasting colour create an exciting playful look. This same zig zag motif is used throughout on both sides of the wrap/scarf; I love how the two sides of fabric produced from the same basic design element have such different characters.

As matching gauge is not essential in this project, look for fingering weight yarns that are very close in weight. The yarns do not need to be the same base.

I am 53 years old, I love knitting with black yarns and claim that I do not yet need reading glasses. When knitting this shawl, it was the first time that I have needed really good lighting. The yarn is laceweight and the colourways were very tonal and not high contrast. Choosing higher contrast colours is easier to work and may reduce eye strain. But no regrets; I love the way these lower contrast colours blend.

This pattern is written for both a scarf and a wrap size.

ERRATA: On the chart on page 23, there is a single knit stitch amongst the purl stitches near the left side on Rows 15-23. These should be purls.
