Herald is a simple and stunning shawl with bias construction, garter stitch and eyelets. ♥ Pattern is adjustable to any yardage.

Starting with just one stitch, Herald is knitted diagonally with increases on one side and decreases on the other. Its slightly asymmetric triangle shape is fun to knit and the result is a versatile and wearable shawl that adds a touch of je ne sais quoi to any outfit.

What appeals the most in this pattern are the endless options to make it completely yours: an adjustable sizing and an absolute uniqueness depending on the yarn you pick. Petite or huge? Solid, speckled, pastel or bold?


Pattern is written for 402 m / 440 yds of fingering weight yarn, but is adjustable to any yarn weight or yardage.

Yellow sample shawl shown with 1 skein (402 m / 440 yards) of The Uncommon Thread Uncommon Everyday in colorway Meadow Grass.
