  • Molecule - Shawl

    Molecule is inspired both by the loose open threads formed by plant cells and DNA representation. It’s helix-shaped cables on the border are a play on transparency, the dropped stitches creating shifting see-through windows. Its slightly asymmetrical, almost triangular shape makes it super easy to wear both around the shoulders and wrapped around the neck!

    Shaped like an asymmetrical triangle with an I-cord border on its straight edge, Molecule starts at the tip with the border motif. As the increases build up on one side, the checkered motif is incorporated. The increases continue until the end where the stitches are bound off in I-cord, matching the edge’s.
