La Toupie is French for a spinning top. This whimsical design is a doubleknit triangular shawl, with spinning tops twirling out from the centre of the shawl.

The La Toupie shawl is a double-knit triangular shawl. The pattern allows you to adjust the size of the shawl.

2 x 430 yds (100 g) of fingering weight yarn in contrasting colours will give you a shawl with a width of 52 in (135 cm), and a height of 26 in (66.5 cm)
2 x 500 yds (100 g) of light fingering weight yarn in contrasting colours will give you a shawl with a width of 55 in (140 cm), and a height of 27.5 in (70 cm)
More yarn will of course allow you to make the shawl even larger.

The red and gold sample is knit in Merino Silk 4 ply Sock from indigodragonfly, and the blue and silver sample is knit in Milky Way from Anzula.

The pattern includes detailed instructions on double-knitting. So it is an excellent way to learn a new technique. If you’re already a double-knitting expert, just enjoy the shawl.

Since it is double-knit, the shawl is fully reversible.
