This triangular shawl is constructed in pieces: two mirrored triangles are knit individually and then joined by a symmetrical center panel. The open fabric is created by elongated stitches with decorative criss-crosses at the edges; practice the beginner’s version of this stitch by making the Bootsy Boot Toppers. A gradient yarn with long color repeats keeps the knitting interesting and makes the shawl look more complex than it is!
Multiple times a year I run Mystery Knit-Alongs in my Ravelry group. My goal with these Mystery Knit-Alongs is to surprise the participants with unexpected constructions so they don’t know right away what they are making. I used this three-part construction for Kinetik, a double-sided lace shawl with beads. I’ve known ever since that I wanted to translate it into a simpler, more relaxed shawl.
