Planet X Bandit by Ela Torrente


Planet X is a mid-way accessory from a triangular shawl and an infinity loop scarf. The rich texture makes stand out solid or tweedy yarns and enjoys with multicoloured and self-striping yarns. Planet X is an ideal never-boring quick knit for last minute gifts and impatient knitters! The pattern is easily adaptable at any weight of yarn and gauge, just add how many rows you want in section 1.
