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!

This design was created in collaboration with Seven Sisters Arts and I had the pleasure to work with the fabulous Apex yarn for my sample!

depth: approx. 50cm/19.7“

Designed for fingering weight yarn in 2 contrasting colours. Allow approx. 360-390yds/330-360m of each colour (total of approx. 780yds/700m) to get the size of the sample.

Seven Sisters Arts Apex (fingering weight, 100g=410yds/375m), 1 skein each in colourways Cranberry (A) (approx. 95g used) and Natural (B) (approx. 88g used)

Not critical for this project but differences will affect yardage requirements and the finished size.
