This pattern is a companion piece knit in the round using similar stitch pattern to the shawl Song and Dance
The beauty of this design uses two different stitch patterns that create a rhythmic and beautifully textured fabric. The combination of an easy lace sequence and a series of simple short row shapes move easily across the row.
The lace sequence made with Yarnovers, and K2togs creates eyelet contrast stripes. Like the notes on a page of music it moves rhythmically across the fabric.
The short row shapes made by knitting back and forth, sway like dancers moving across the dance floor. Short Rows are created using German Short Rows - described in pattern.
