Pleat Sleek

Pleat Sleek1

Pleat Sleek takes simple garter and mesh stitches and makes a wild and wacky mini shawl shape that’s designed to sit perfectly across your shoulders. The five pleats create a gently curve that rests on the back of your neck, and the deep cut-out shape of the shawl’s left side mirrors your arm.

This design is perfect for solid, semi-solid, and variegated sock yarns.
