“Quicksand” is a triangular shawl worked sideways, starting at one of the tips. Shaped with increases hidden in the side cable, it features an intriguing cable pattern meandering through brioche pockets, and is topped off with an i-cord bind-off at the widest part. I spotted this interesting stitch pattern on a Polish knitting website and decided to adapt it for the shawl shape.

PS: Contrary to popular perception based mainly on 1960’s movie culture, it is not physically possible for a person to sink entirely into quicksand – no danger immersing yourself in this cozy shawl!
