Isosceles is a shawl that is worked from the “inside out” using modular knitting. The work begins with just one stitch as you cast on for the center piece. The colors are added in sequence, by picking up the stitches along the outside edges. Isosceles is finished off with binding all the way around and a picot bind off in a contrasting color.

The models shown are worked with madelinetosh sport and Merino Sport by Sunshine Yarns.

There are two sizes included in this pattern: small and large. Simply follow the directions for the size and style you are knitting.

This pattern is available in English and German.
