Glenhost is an asymmetrical triangle shawl with a mix of very simple stitches.

It was designed with Americo Original Winter Flamme Yarn, but would look great with any two solid colour yarns. There are segments of garter stitch mixed with stripes which are worked in a textural stitch to create a reversible fabric.

This wrap is worked by starting from one narrow point. The stitches increase on one side and decrease on the opposite edge. This method creates a triangle with long points to wrap around your neck, tie or pin into place. The combination of a blended alpaca and wool yarn knitted at a loose gauge creates a very soft fabric with drape.
