A lovely triangular shawl worked in 3 colors.

I like simple things. They are my favorite… and I love the surprise of an interesting construction and small details. So that is basically what this shawl is about. 3 colors, simple stripes, and relaxing knitting that come together to create a very wearable piece.

This pattern was introduced in November 2012 as “A Mystery with Joji” MKAL. On February 2013 we published the finished version of the pattern. :D

This is an asymetrical triangle, and it is available in 2 sizes.
Medium size is 79 inches (198 cm) from side to side and 23 inches (58 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point after blocking (it is quite big!).
Large size is 94½ inches (240) cm from side to side and 27 inches (68 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point after blocking (even bigger!).

What you will need:
US 5 (3.5mm) needles and fingering (sock) weight yarn, in 3 colors.
Medium Size:
Color A: 310 yards
Color B: 260 yards
Color C: 260 yards
Large Size:
Color A: 510 yards
Color B: 475 yards
Color C: 420 yards

Some tips about how to choose colors:

  • Color A is going to be next to both B and C, so try to choose a color that can can pull the other 2 together.
  • Colors B and C are not going to be next to each other, so they can be very different, or very similar, and they will still look good (e.g. they can be 2 shades of the same color, and they will still look different because they will always be divided by color A).
  • All colors will be present throughout the shawl, so you don’t need to worry about which color will be next to your face and which one will be on the opposite end of the shawl.*
