Olan is a new, adventurous knitter, and this is designed for him: an easy garter stitch triangle shaped with decreases and highlighted with a color-striped border.

Slipped stitches create textural stripes that run at right angles to the border. The cushy garter stitch makes this a great piece to wear at your neck or on your shoulders.

I used two skeins of Loft in the main color and a half skein for the contrast color.

Finished measurements after blocking: 48” wingspan; 23.5” back length.

While gauge is not critical, it will affect the size of the finished shawl and the amount of yardage needed.

Many thanks to Katherine Vaughn ktlv for tech editing.
