I have wanted to make a Vertices Unite shawl for forever and a day - the original sample was knit by Stephen using our very softest yarn, Floating.
When we received our custom La Bien Aimée color, Day by the Bay, I knew the time had arrived. The colors used in the shawl are inspired by the blue San Francisco Bay and the dynamic shoreline of grassy hills and deep green juniper trees, flecks of rust represent the golden gate bridge off in the distance, pops of orange and pink reflect the sprinkle of poppy and wild flowers, wisps of grey float through the shawl, similar to the fog drifting overhead.
My sample is the Fog colorway and includes the following: Floating in the colors Kombu (D), Pip (E), and Indigo Blue Sky (C), LBA Merino Singles Day by the Bay (B), and Flock Granite (A).
You also have the choice of choosing the Sand colorway - all skeins are the same, except, you will receive a skein of Flock in Sunflower Seed instead of Granite.
This shawl was incredibly fun to knit - and I am in love with the drape.
Stephen says: Vertices Unite is a playful geometric shawl exploration filled with fun shaping techniques and lots of color. Increases, decreases, and short rows form the simple shapes. Each section is picked up and knit from the last section or worked as it is being joined to the other pieces like a puzzle so it is completely seamless. An I-cord border adds a crisp outline to the finished shawl.

When working with yarn dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
