In photography, a perfectly composed image often relies upon “the rule of thirds”. This technique involves placing the subject off center, which results in an interesting, dynamic image that also feels balanced and natural.

This shawl uses that principle as well, in construction, stitch pattern, and color. It’s an easy knit, but takes you in unexpected directions. The result is a beautiful, balanced, and totally wearable shawl with dramatic flair.

Rule of Thirds was a MKAL in July of 2018. You can view the beautiful shawls created by participants in the discussion forums of Nona’s Ravelry Group.

“Rule of Thirds” MKAL features three skeins of Tenderfoot, by Polka Dot Sheep Yarns. It’s a soft and luxurious independently dyed yarn from Whitefish, Montana, and the color combinations are stunning!
