Cables gently run along one side of this beautiful triangular shawl, creating a wide textured border.

A Gentle Wind is a triangular, sideways knit shawl that combines multiple textures for lots of visual interest.
You start knitting with just a few stitches at the right tip, then work your way across to the left edge, creating the asymmetrical triangular shape, which makes it fun to knit and easy to wear.

It is written for worsted weight yarn, but the pattern is easily adjustable if you wish to use a different yarn weight and/or make a smaller/larger shawl according to the yardage you
have available.

In some of the photos you can see me wearing a shawl pin. It’s the beautiful Classic Waves Shawl Pin from JUL Designs.

This pattern is an enjoyable and easy knit with a beautiful result. The finished shawl will add a cosy item to your daily winter wardrobe staple.

The pattern comes with fully written and charted instructions so you can choose which you prefer to work from.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
