This triangular shawl is named for the first Vermont peak I hiked, thanks to a friend that is determined to make it to the top 100 peaks in New England.

This is a fun knit for a heavy DK or worsted weight yarn, featuring a garter-framed design.

It explores texture through four evolving motifs reminiscent of mountain peaks, one of which isa knit-purl motif and the others of which are lace.

Its result is a warm and cozy wrap for fall and winter that will remind you of the green you’ll see in spring.

The full shawl is intended to be approximately 72” across the top and 36” deep at the center. It can be modified by knitting in a smaller gauge or removing pattern repeats to result in a shawlette.

Yarn requirements
For the full size, you will need 700-750 yards of DK or light worsted weight yarn, or 4 skeins of 180yd yarn.

Alternate yarn ideas:
Alpaca Elegance
Sylvan Spirit
