This pattern is available for €3.00 EUR buy it now

Note - this is designed to be worn as a scarf, fitting in neatly at the neck. The shape does not work well as a shawl. I know some people prefer shawls so I also made triangular shawl pattern, which is available separately or as part of the ebook.

Knitted like a shawl (start with just a few stitches) to wear like a scarf.

Weave some contrast - use different textures or colours.

For colours you can use self-striping, highly variegated or semi-solid yarns.

For texture use different weights or types of yarn.

You can also use leftovers if you don’t mind sewing in ends.

Reversible too!
