This cosy triangular shawl combines lovely graphic mosaic knitting, garter stitch and a beautiful lace pattern that echoes the diamond mosaic motif.
It is worked in fingering weight yarn in two colours. Big colour blocks, bold mosaic diamonds and elegant lace create a fascinating interplay of colour & texture in this eyecatching item!
The two-colour diamond motif is created with the mosaic knitting technique, which is easy to knit as it uses slipped stitches and only one colour at a time.
Knit on the bias as a sideways triangle with a centred bottom tip makes it a cosy and easy to wear shawl.
The pattern comes in fully written out instructions as well as charted ones.
I hope you enjoy the pattern!
