Elbe charms with its clean and contemporary look. The body of this asymmetric triangle shawl is worked in a rib check pattern, a fun combination of knits and purls. The delicate lace border has a beautiful cabled eyelet pattern. Together they create an intriguing surface texture, yet the shawl is easy and relaxing to knit.

Elbe is part of the Mix & Match – Rivers collection. The other patterns in the collection are Tiber and Seine. All these shawls can be knitted on their own, just as they are. But if you have the entire collection, you can also mix and match. With the 3 patterns of the Mix & Match – Rivers collection, you get 9 different shawls!
