Five Peaks Shawl
UPDATE: I’m psyched about revisiting and updating this design with charts, variations, and geeky insights, once I get caught up from teaching at conferences throughout 2014.
Worked on the bias, this shawl hugs the shoulders because it is shaped like a letter “V” (or “L”): a triangle with 5 corners, not 3.
The Tunisian eyelets are worked along the edgings as you go. A stitch borrowed from knitting (“simple cast on) and macrame (double half hitch) is used along the left edge of each Forward Pass so that its stretch and drape equals the right edge.
For more information on this method of ending the left edge and why it’s important, see this blog entry.
