Strié is a triangular shawl knit from the neck edge down using three yarn colorsways to create a striped shawl with two halves.

It can be worked in highly contrasting colorways for a bold look or colorways slightly different from each other for a subtle look and anything in between. The first colorway will form stripes throughout the shawl, while the second colorway is the contrast on the left side of the shawl and the third is the contrast on the right side. Following the striped section, the bottom border of the shawl is a geometric lace that continues the striped theme and uses the third colorway with accents of the second colorway.

The shawl construction includes the basic knits, purls, increases and decreases that most beginner knitters are familiar with and slipped stitches and intarsia to link the contrasting colorway stripes at the center of the shawl.

Yarn requirements: (3) fingering colorways, 50g each (approx. 200y each)
