A triangular garter stitch shawl in two colors. Pick colors that have some contrast! This shawl is knit modularly by picking up stitches along the edge of previously knit triangles. The border is picked up and knitted in sections.

Skills required:
Long-tail cast on
Decreasing (k2tog)
Picking up stitches
Increasing (kfb)
Short seaming (about 1.5”)

Yardage info: prototype was made with 2 skeins of Wollmeise DK, using just under 200g of each color. Garter stitch yardage seems to vary a lot so I’ve added 10% to the requirements. YMMV.
