Start this lusciously fluid triangle shawl with a stunning 10” wide lace edging for a different take on triangle shawl construction.

Get an Edge to Start Shawl is designed for knitting with a yarn plied with beads and a companion unbeaded plain yarn. The beaded yarn is featured in the wide diamond edging. The unbeaded yarn is used to fill in the triangular body of the shawl with a lacy V-diagonal trellis stitch that both keeps the silhouette of the triangle shawl shallower than usual and naturally extends into an attractive collar.

This shallower triangle shawl can be more flattering to your derriere when wearing the shawl traditionally with the point hanging down center of back. Another attractive way to wear this shawl is upside down from the traditional. A bonus is that the shawl is entirely reversible!

Sample model is knitted with Tilli Tomas Beaded Lace 100% Silk with Petite Beads (50g/165 yds - 3 skeins) and Tilli Tomas Demi Plié 100% Natural Plied Silk (50g/290 yds - 2 skeins), both in color 280 Washington.
