Enderby is a crescent shaped assymetrical triangle shawl knit with three colours.

This shawl is knit using three colours of DK weight yarn and makes a perfect layering piece for those early autumn months. It is an asymmetrical triangle shawl knit from side to side beginning with the smallest point and working its way out. It alternates sections of stockinette stitch and gothic lace, and ends with garter stitch to create a shawl with a ton of texture.

Enderby uses i-cord in a variety of ways to produce a nicely finished looking piece. It starts with an i-cord cast on, continues on the neck edge of the body and ends with an i-cord bind off. All of these techniques are explained in the pattern. Because of the i-cord edging on the body, you end up with a uniquely crescent shaped triangle shawl.
