A lot of triangular shawls have you cast on a few stitches at the center of the neck, then work outward, each row getting progressively longer, ending with the cast off being the two non-top edges. I find myself very excited at the beginning, but getting progressively less patient with the longer and longer rows as the initial infatuation fades.
This scarf begins with stitches cast on for the lace edge along the two lower sides, then stitches are decreased to produce a triangle shape.
Pattern includes charts and written directions, and stitch count totals for every row.
I also include the tips how to make larger or smaller shawl and the yardage needed.
Any sock yarn (I am using Indigo Moon 100% Merino Wool) 370 yards. Color: Majestic Purple.
Needle: 7.00 mm or 9.00 mm only to cast on and 4.5 mm for the rest.
Crochet Hook: 3.5 mm to cast on (optional)
Finished Size: 45” across top edge, 30” long from centre top to point
Note: I saw in the FO that Annie experienced run out of yarn. Probably it’s because I am a tight knitter. My gauge for this shawl is 20 sts = 10 cm (4”) using 4.5 mm needle.
