This generously sized, simple-textured shawl features triangles upon triangles
upon triangles. Garter-stitch borders combined with the knit-heavy stitch
pattern mean that purling is limited, and the 8-row pattern repeat is easily
memorized. Worked in a springy worsted-weight yarn, this shawl is a quick and
cozy knit, perfect for curling up on a sofa or by a fire.

Shawl is worked from the point up. Two stitches
are increased every wrong-side row, alongside a
central spine for the border set-up, and alongside
the inner side of the border thereafter.
To reduce the amount of purling required, all
increases and patterning are worked on wrong-
side rows. All right-side rows are knit even.
