This top-down, elongated triangular shawl is a great project for new and experienced knitters alike.

The simple stockinette section at the beginning helps you learn the increase pattern. Then we add in some fun texture in short bursts which should keep you interested throughout the project!

The result is a very wearable shawl that has a bit of lace without being too fancy for everyday use. Wear it over your shoulders or bandana style to add some warmth and fun to your look!

As of February 2019, there’s now a Tan House Brook Hat to pair nicely with your shawl!

Finished Size
Fingering Weight: 56 inches wide. 18 inches deep
Worsted Weight: 64 inches wide. 22 inches deep

Please Note If your gauge is different than that listed, I highly recommend having more yarn available. Nearly all test knitters used very close to 400 yards. Instructions are available in the pattern for how to make pattern longer if you have more yarn and would like to use it up.

Suggested needles for Worsted Weight Version: US 9 (5.5 mm) with a gauge of 14 stitches over 4 inches in stockinette

For Gradients
See Project Page for the Gradient Version I did using a Fiber Optic Yarns Gradient Kit if you have a gradient you’d like to use that is around 475 yards. Specifics notes on that project page about modifications that may work for you.
