This asymmetrical triangular kerchief scarf or shawl is worked entirely in Garter stitch with rows upon rows of eyelets giving it a mesh appearance. It’s a relatively easy pattern to memorize and one that highlights hand dyed yarns such as Dye is Cast Yarns Squish Wish Sock beautifully. One skein in the colorway Shrieking Violet was used to make the sample in the photos.

The rows of holes in the shawl reminded me of gun shot holes. I’m a huge Noir film/gangster movie fan so decided to name it after the Tommy Gun.
