Punto Shawl is an asymmetric, crescent shaped which is easy to drape and interesting to knit. The shawl features plain garter rows interspersed with colorwork wedges with pointy edges half the way and curved edges on the other half. The shawl is worked sideways with wedges and the crescent shape achieved using short rows.

Punto shawl uses the variegated yarns to its benefit by breaking up the colors using slipped stitches. Use the same CC yarn as shown in the sample or be adventurous and use different yarns for each wedge. Instead of using variegated yarn, you can use different solid yarns for each wedge.

The pattern is written for one size, 46” wingspan and 14” at the widest part.

This is written pattern only. No chart is provided. A schematic showing the shawl measurements is included in the pattern.

MC yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Worsted in Natural Colorway: 420 yards
CC yarn: Malabrigo Seleccion Privada in Code B: 110 yards

Punto Shawl is part of a collection which also features Punto Hat and Punto Cowl.

All three patterns are available as part of Punto ebook.
