Short Description: Phosphoro by The Yarniad. Simple, soothing garter stitch meets stripes and fun colors. We’ve heard this story before. But Phosphoro combines the well-known and well-loved garter stripe duo with an interesting construction that creates the perfect triangular shawl shape and intersecting lines. Because there are no stitch or row-count-specific patterns to worry about, Phosphoro is very easily modified to suit any weight of yarn, and instructions are included in the pattern to make those mods as simple as can be. Grab a set of four colors – neons, neutrals, gradient, anything – and have fun creating and wearing this simple and striking wrap.
