I don't know what it is about geometric patterns in knitting. There's something about the way the design comes together, the optical illusion of it all, that screams "knit me and impress your friends! I think you should check out Amy's pattern and do just that!
Amy describes her pattern as such:
Worn as a hooded wrap, shawl, poncho or cowl it is a versatile and transitional garment
Translation: THIS DESIGN ROCKS!
