Brooklyn Tweed

Counterpane

Description

For knitters who love a geometric puzzle, Norah Gaughan’s Counterpane is a study in asymmetry that will keep both the brain and needles busy! Constructed in squares and triangles worked from the edges inward, Counterpane uses bands of stockinette, garter, and brioche to create three-dimensional texture as well as arresting diagonals lines. Brooklyn Tweed considers Counterpane a level 4 out of 5 in difficulty. For more information about materials, gauge, and size, please click Product Details, above.
