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

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?

The English version of this pattern has both written and charted instructions.

Pattern is written for 400 m / 437 yds of fingering weight yarn, but is adjustable to any yarn weight or yarn amount.

Yellow sample shown with one skein of The Uncommon Thread Uncommon Everyday (100% merino wool; 402 m / 440 yds per 100 g) in colour Meadow Grass.

Dark blue sample shown with 3 skeins of Woolfolk Sno (100% merino wool; 204 m / 223 yds per 50 g). Total yarn amount 612 m / 669 yds.

Size 4 mm / US 6 needles (for fingering weight yarn)

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
