nix / Leila Raabe

Leila hits the nail on the head in the shawl department once again, using as Nix's border a single, sculptural cable, framed by simple lace. The border is shaped with short rows, then stitches are picked up all along the slinky cable, and a simple garter body ensues with center decreases. We love the styling potential for this piece!
