Angler shawl is named after the type of fisherman who uses the fishing technique of angling- a method of fishing by means of an “angle” (fish hook). Due to the peculiar but fascinating shape made when working this shawl, you will find the angle meets in the center until it is time to turn the corner. Then, the angles trajectory changes as you work to achieve the triangular shape of the shawl. This pattern is mostly charted.
