“Duality” is a triangular shawl, highlighting the contrast between basic stockinette stripes and zig-zagging mosaic knit stripes of the same two colors. The shawl is finished off using a two-color bind-off, alternating the two colors.

This design represents the two sides of a knitter – time to let the “wild” side show!

The size of the shawl is, of course, adjustable, but a wingspan of approximately 60” gives the wearer many styling options. The knitter has the option of aggressively blocking the mosaic section to match the size of the stockinette or allowing the tighter mosaic section to create a slightly asymmetrical shawl, adding to the “duality” of the design.
