Along the Way is an asymmetrical triangle shawl worked bottom up on a garter and stockinette stitch base featuring decreases towards a central spine (chevron) and some easy lace to keep things interesting.

The central spine stitch is used as an orientation point during the whole pattern. It can easily be identified, please see the picture below to know what to look out for. You could use a stitch marker, but I discourage this as this marker would have to be moved around every right side row which I find annoying - but it’s totally up to you.

The yarn used can be easily substituted with any fingering weight yarn in three colors that play well together. The colors are blended into each other with transition sections (see pattern below) and hard changes in color at the upper end of the shawl. Hand dyed yarns and speckled yarns are well suited for this project.

This knitting pattern is suitable for beginning lace knitters and easy enough to make it the perfect knitting project for any waiting room.

All pattern names from the Knitting in the Waiting Room project are inspired by post punk songs. This one is named and inspired by the song Along the Way by Bad Religion.
