The textured triangle-shaped shawl combines a simple lace pattern with a similar textured pattern, which results in an addictive knit. It is designed for the heavenly yarn Mesilyak DK Q-lana.

I warmly recommend this yarn for this pattern! It is very soft and cozy and provides a perfect glow and beautiful colors! Kits for this shawl are available at Q-lana

Starting from the tip of the shawl it is growing symmetrically around the center up to its widest part.
Although both patterns are easy to knit and to memorize, detailed instructions are given and every repeat is described. Once you are familiar with the patterns and their repeats, you won’t need the detailed instructions anymore.
