SANKAKU 三角 (jap.) - triangle, triangular

This rectangular shape shawl may deceive you at first sight with it’s crochet-like texture. But it is in fact KNIT. Intricate texture of positive and negative triangles is created by combining short rows and dropped stitches for this unique technique. Malleable and airy, this wrap will be ideal for summer and delightful as a snug voluminous scarf for cooler seasons. Photo tutorial is included for easier guidance.
