The meditative power of the garter stitch is applied here to give a classic, rustic feel while a modern update is offered with columns of cluster stitches flowing from the top edge. Bassenfell is a two-skein project that offers interesting construction, creating a pleasing asymmetric shape that is worked from tip to tip. Long enough to knot around your neck on cold days but pretty enough to drape and make a statement when safe from the wind and rain. A video tutorial is available for the I-cord cast on.
