Introduction
Rák is an exploration of color and stitch patterns. A combination of basic patterns, bringing solid and openwork together. It includes a novel way of incorporating vertical stripes seamlessly into the main body of work by playing with the direction of knitting.

Rák can we worn as a shawl or used as a throw/small blanket.

Instructions are given in written abbreviated form and charts.
